In The Netherlands, some mayors are sending letters to the kids living in their city or municipality. Telling them what is going on, and how they can help. By following the rules, and by connecting with those who are hit hardest by the isolation. Earlier, I saw the mayor of the city of Groningen had done so, and now our own mayor sent a letter as well.
