Family Of Dale Witkowski Urges Community To Be Supportive, Compassionate


He was the first one in FDL County to pass away as a result of the COVID-19 virus. Now the family of Dale Witkowski is asking you to be serious about COVID-19. Witkowski passed away March 19 following complications of the coronavirus following an Egyptian River Cruise. 

Witkowski’s family is asking that you don’t panic, but rather educate yourself and your family.  They also ask that you do not blame or shun, but be supportive and compassionate, especially with the people who have tested positive for this virus. 

The family said the country has responded too slowly and now “we are seeing devastating effects in our country, state and community and as a family.  Knowledge and mindful, safe practices are what is needed now.” A funeral service is scheduled for later this summer.

It is tragic and Dale was a great person and did not deserve to have this happen to him.
However the comment saying the country responded too slowly and caused the devastating effects is uncalled for.

They ask for ppl to be supportive & not lay blame yet they are criticizing the country's response time. Seems rather inconsistent.
I think his family needs to understand EVERYONE is on a learning curve with COVID-19 - including govt officials. This is a very fluid situation.
