By now you have heard that Governor Walz has issued an executive order that Minnesotans stay at home starting on Friday night. Food shelves, homeless shelters, and soup kitchens are all considered essential services. Damiano will continue providing bagged meals during regular meal times for the duration.
We know that right now you miss getting a handshake and hug from Richard when you walk in the door in the morning, hearing Donna's laughter, and even getting a scolding from Flora. We are doing everything that we can to keep our staff healthy and safe, so you won't see them as much as you used to, particularly those at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
