Co(ho)ronavirus – Cohousing and Covid 19

An American webchat we spotted indicated the steps that cohousing groups there are considering or have taken. Here are a few:

  • Close the common house
  • We’re having Skype and zoom dinners!!
  • (If not already done) ask every member to fill out a questionnaire that includes relative/friend contact info, doctor and medicine info, allergies, health conditions, etc.
  • People with flexible schedules can offer childcare to those parents who need to keep working.
  • Since I have been traveling, I am self-isolating and not using the common laundry for two weeks..

Every cohousing group will have complex decisions to take about these and other issues, often under stress. Rhizome can offer you online support in making decisions and avoiding or dealing with conflict. Get in touch.
