We Choose Community

We find ourselves in unprecedented times – ones full of uncertainty, anxiety, and confusion. It feels like the ground shifts between our feet every day.

But as we’ve seen in the last week, the Tennessee volunteer spirit is alive and well in our communities. Neighbor helping neighbor. Friends reaching out to check on each other. Nurses, doctors, teachers, truck drivers, grocery store workers, and thousands of volunteers all responding to the call for help and rising up to serve together.

In times of crisis, we choose community.

The next few weeks will be unlike anything we’ve seen in our recent history. I want to offer just a few pieces of help.

If you can, stay home. You’re safer, we’re safer, and the community is safer with everyone at home. This is how we flatten the curve of the virus and give our healthcare professionals the time they need.

Spread truth and compassion – not fear and misinformation. With any crisis, you’ll see rumors abound that have no basis in fact. Trust the experts and double check everything before you share it with others.

Lastly – please check in on your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers. Set up calls to touch base, online video chats to see each other, or even just write them a note and drop it in the mail.

Remember – we’re all in this together. Let’s look out for each other. That’s what communities like ours do best.

Checking In

It’s been a wild few days. School closings. Limited access to public buildings. Even going to the grocery store can seem frightening.

I wanted to take a minute and just check in with everyone. How are you doing? Can I help with anything?

Drop me an email – hey@chasefortn.com – and let me know if I can help out with anything.

Remember – we’re all in this together.

COVID-19

As the number of confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) diagnoses continues to rise, I wanted to lay out how this affects our community and what you can be doing.

This is not the typical seasonal flu. With an estimated 3.5% mortality and a vaccine months away at best, this virus is not one we need to take lightly or minimize. For now, we can’t beat this virus through a vaccine or other medicine. But we can beat it through our collective actions.

That’s where you can help. It’s called flattening the curve.

Take precautions such as washing your hands, minimizing travel, and keeping social interactions to a minimum. Put off any non-essential travel. Check in on your neighbors. Contact our state reps and urge them to take the right precautions now rather than delaying.

After you read this update, look through this trusted source – flattenthecurve.com. It’ll give you more background on the virus along with more actions you can take to help flatten the curve.

In short – be informed and helpful to those around you. The next few months will be hard, especially for the most high-risk people in our community.

We’re in this together. Let’s look out for each other. Let’s be good to one another. It’s what Tennesseans do best.
