It was posted by Fred, the Cohousing-L list manager <fholson [at] cohousing.org> after putting attachment at http://l.cohousing.org/Coronavirus_Preps.xlsx -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- JPCohousing in Boston has published the attached sheet with a protocol to follow. It includes recommendations about when to close the commonhouse, when to suspend common meals, etc. Our community will discuss these recommendations on Wednesday and may make adjustments. I think this is a nice model to start from, feel free to adopt to suit your own community's needs.
