The ones I would like to give shout out to is the custodial/housekeeping people at the hospitals. They are the overlooked personnel who have to clean all the areas of the facility, the rooms that the covid patients are in or have left. They are definitely in direct area of the virus and overlooked by most!

My love and gratitude to you Julie for your dedicated service to our community!

Cooperative Care of Wautoma nominates:
Deborah Campshure and Juanita Olivas. Both of these caregivers were willing to step up in the midst of the panic and maintain cares for our clients. In the beginning of the outbreak we were not able to source enough PPE for all of our staff. We were graciously donated a small supply of masks needed to provide hands on care to our most vulnerable clients. Deb and Terry both stepped up and took on the challenge of providing hands on care during that time. We are so Thankful to them for going above and beyond in the care they provide every day to those in our communities that need it most!
