COVID Pandemic Responsibility

Pima Meeting is in unity to endorse the Health Citizen Pledge priorities, as part of our civic responsibility to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will consider with ongoing concern the priorities of:  

The pledge encourages each of us to take the time to consider what role we can play in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 in our community. 

We use the term “citizen” as a verb associated with taking responsibility for the common good, and not as a noun conferring a sense of individual entitlement as a birthright. Likewise, we use the term "pledge" as a verb indicating a promise, not an oath or contract. 

By signing the pledge we promise to access reputable sources of information about COVID -19, take steps to protect ourselves and our community from the virus, come up with a viable COVID-19 plan should we test positive, and support COVID-19 policies that are evidence based.
