The current spread of the coronavirus has everyone on edge! Trips are being canceled, quarantines have been put in place and safe health recommendations are now the norm.
Our cousins and friends in Trentino-Alto Adige live in an area with many confirmed cases, but no confirmed deaths at this point. Although not in “The Red Zone”, (Veneto to the east and Lombardy to the west) they are facing many restrictions to daily life. As of yesterday, a quarter of Italy’s population has been put under mandatory quarantine in an effort to slow and contain the virus. Schools are closed, travel suspended and people are telecommuting from home.
To our extended family and many friends in Italy, we are thinking of you! Your American cousins hold you in our hearts and hope that all will come through this pandemic safe and in good health.
