Voice of the President – April 2020
We are all trying to adjust to the current reality regarding the havoc COVID-19 is causing our nation. Our prayers are with the families who have suffered the loss of loved ones and those who are PRESENTLY
fighting for their lives. President Trump, Vice-President Pence and their team are doing their level best to save lives and get America back to work. Please continue to heed the warnings of the “Stay HomeWork Safe” executive order from our President, Governor, County Judge and Mayor. Thank you to all who are on the frontlines risking their lives for us. It’s important that we take care of each other. New York‘s coronavirus death toll surpasses that of 9/11. And the death toll is rising. I commend Dr. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for speaking out against unsanitary wet markets that caused this current public health crisis.

BARW Executive Board will be brain storming ways to connect with our members alongside our social media during Stay Home-Work Safe.
