News From Gomel – Covid-19 – You may have read about the virus having taken hold in an orphanage in Minsk Region, but as far as we know there are no outbreaks in any of the institutions and schools we support, and everyone is safe and well at Klimovka (right) and Rodni Kut. The Mayflower Centre and all the Day Centres are closed now, and people working in the institutions are working there for two weeks and then having two weeks at home to reduce daily cross contamination. The President still insists the virus is not a threat, but the majority of people seem to be acting as responsibly as possible. People are having to take holidays from work, either paid or unpaid, there is no furlough scheme and no support for businesses.
