WHEREAS, our most vulnerable populations and communities at risk have been most seriously affected by COVID-19; and

 

WHEREAS, many have suffered and died from COVID-19 in isolation, without the touch and comfort of their friends and family, and many more have lost the opportunity to engage in traditional memorial and funeral gatherings honoring the lives of those who have passed, leaving family and loved ones to grieve in isolation; and

 

WHEREAS, victims of COVID-19 are more than a statistic, each affected person led a unique life that was cut short by COVID-19; and
