@webcommsat mentioned that during last week’s devchat, Josepha shared the difficulties some contributors are having at this time and encouraged everyone to reach out to our friends. 

Thanks to those who have been sharing the problems and impact of Covid with Abha and other members of the projects group in marketing, and we continue to be here for you. 

We are very grateful to Josepha and Chloe for adding their voice of support and encouragement, and highlighting the generic information we have been able to brief them on over the months. 

For anyone having ongoing acute or prolonged difficulties from the pandemic, we are a team and we will continue to support each other. I hope we can avoid people feeling alone and isolated.
