We have curated a set of guides & guidance for coops to navigate this difficult time.
Concern for Community
This is truly a cooperative moment where cooperative principle 7 must be the focus. History has shown us that collaborative, mutually supportive communities are the ones that are most successful at sustainably recovering from large disasters.
Our COVID-19 guidance will be regularly reviewed and updated when appropriate. Please pay attention to directions specific to your country and region along with what is compiled here.
