AS THE CORONAVIRUS CONTINUES TO DEVASTATE OUR AGRICULTURAL MARKETS, COVID-19 IS ALSO AFFECTING OUR RURAL COMMUNITIES. ALAN MORGAN IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF THE NATIONAL RURAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION AND RECENTLY TALKED WITH RFD-TV ABOUT THE VIRUS MIGHT MEAN FOR RURAL HEALTH AND SOME OF THE ACTIONS THAT WE SHOULD BE TAKING.

CONTINUING HIS EFFORTS TO CURB THE GROWING NUMBER OF FARMER SUICIDES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, US SENATOR JON TESTER HAS PRESSED AGRICULTURE SECRETARY SONNY PERDUE ON HIS AGENCY'S EFFORTS TO ADDRESS THE CRISIS. TESTER—WHO RECENTLY INTRODUCED HIS BIPARTISAN SEEDING RURAL RESILIENCE ACT TO ADDRESS THE FARMER SUICIDE CRISIS—HAS BEEN WORKING TO GET THE USDA TO MAKE STRIDES TOWARDS TACKLING MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS IN RURAL AREAS. ACCORDING TO THE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL, THE SUICIDE RATE IS 45 PERCENT HIGHER IN RURAL AMERICA THAN IN URBAN AREAS, AND MONTANA ALREADY HAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST SUICIDE RATES IN THE COUNTRY. AMERICANS IN RURAL COMMUNITIES DEAL WITH SUBSTANTIAL ISOLATION, SIGNIFICANT TRAVEL TIMES FOR BASIC HEALTH SERVICES, LACK OF BROADBAND ACCESS THAT WOULD ENABLE TELEHEALTH SERVICES AND STIGMAS AGAINST RECEIVING COUNSELING.
