Farewell for now for Argentina exchange student

Ornella Fortonani was a foreign exchange student from Argentina this year. She was welcomed to the home of Peder, Jennifer, and Cami Culver, Wautoma. Her time in Wautoma was cut short this past week due to COVID-19. As Argentina proceeds into their colder months, it is anticipated their cases of the virus may greatly increase. Although the Argentina borders are shut down, she was granted permission and travel arrangements through the Embassy. She is expected to reach her home and family April 23. She and her U.S sister, Cami, plan to video chat almost every day, especially during these days of great restrictions. Pictured is Ornella Fortonani and Cami Culver on a final video call April 19 between the Argentina and U.S families.
