Update from TNII

May Update From Our Sister Parish In Tierra Nueva Dos, Guatemala

—from Carrie Stengel, May 2020

In brief:

  • There are now cases of COVID-19 in TN2.
  • Some of the local neighborhoods in TN2 have blocked off their streets (as the point of entrance from the main road) and are disinfecting entering cars, offering hand sanitizer and disinfecting the streets.
  • There are now over 100 people in quarantine in TN1 and TN2, most of them in TN2.
  • In early April, there was a landslide in TN2 in the 10 de febrero neighborhood. Fortunately, no one was hurt.
  • We have no idea how long the social distancing measures will continue.
  • Some of the scholarship programs in El Salvador and Guatemala are distributing the scholarships to the families even though school is closed.
  • Greetings from TNII: Santos and Yoli both send their love to everyone at SJA. I keep getting calls from new people every week. :)
