COVID Task Force

Our board has revitalized our COVID-19 Task Force to lead our response to the resurgence of the virus. I am grateful to two board members - Maureen Mersmann and Matt Sommerville - and to association member Mikaela Hildebrand for their invaluable role here. You can contact the taskforce by mailing covid@islzambia.org.

You will no doubt be aware that we have surveyed the association on this one to get some sense of how our community views the situation. If you haven’t done so already, you can fill in the survey here. We will likely repeat this survey as the situation develops.

Association views are important to the board when making decisions, but we need to look at objective factors too. Our board will take in to account objective measures of the threat posed by the virus. These will include the percentage of tests that are positive and the number of new cases per 100,000 people. As each of these measures is prone to distortion, we will be looking for sustained downward trends as an indication that the situation is improving.

Another way you can let us know what you think is by leaving a comment below.
