First Case Confirmed in Rwanda
We hope and trust you are all doing well.
We wanted to let you know that Rwanda has its first case of COVID19. The patient went to a facility yesterday, tested positive, and is currently isolated at the treatment facility.
Throughout the morning we have been in touch with government officials, other school heads, and the Board. We are thankful that the Government of Rwanda has this case under control and in isolation. All the measures worked the way they had intended it to.
Since this case is in Kigali, we will proceed under Level 3 in our Pandemic Protocols.
This doesn’t impact much of our day-to-day at this point. This will mean no sports with other schools, no field trips, no hired vehicles, and no visitors on campus without prior approval.
We will continue to work with the government closely and will update the community should anything change.
Through all of this, let us remain calm, prayerful and hopeful.
Romans 5:2b-5: And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
In addition to living from this perspective, let’s remain vigilant with our hygiene. Wash hands, wash hands, wash hands! If anyone is sick, please stay at home.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Trusting the Lord together with you.
