The national emergency status ended on May 31st with only a few restrictions remaining.
Open air gatherings with a maximum of 300 people spaced at 2m apart, or 100 people indoors spaced at 2m apart, and wearing masks, was permitted. Most companies restarted their activities, but schools and universities remain closed. Every regional authority or county can now impose extra restrictions based on their local situation should they be required. Some have already reduced the number of people allowed at indoor meetings to 50, and outdoors to 100. After a week with numbers of only 2 or 3 cases in the country, we are now back to 50 to 70 daily, so the virus is back. Last week we had 353 new cases.
We are presently working on the F2F updates, as well as the necessary withdrawals and new enrolments. We are taking care of our beneficiaries, and our monthly distributions, including that of the soup kitchen continue. Senior care is continuing with regular new enrolments. We are missing indoor visitation and group gatherings, but there is good and regular communication with beneficiaries. The plan is to do as much as authorities allow.
Two weeks ago, even traditional summer camps for the children were realistic, but with the new spread of the virus, we remain cautious. We will perhaps suggest a one-day summer camp, but the timing will depend entirely on the situation in July.
