The Mortenson Family’s dental practice has become a “sideshow” in the coronivirus pandemic.
The family’s former president and chairman, George Mortenson, said he had “no intention” of staying in the community, and he called for the establishment of a “safe community”.
“If we can’t live in the safe community that we know and love in the state of Queensland, then we are not safe,” Mr Mortenson said.
“It’s like saying to a child who’s not in the classroom: ‘Go back to school, because your teacher will tell you what to do.'”
“The first time that I saw George’s face I thought: ‘You have no idea how upset I am’.” Mr Mortensen has spoken out in recent weeks about his fears about the health of the family’s community and about the role of the health authorities.
He has spoken about the need for the community to be “welcoming and accepting” of people with “cognitive impairment” and “psychiatric and neurological disorders”.
“The best way to manage our community is to be welcoming and accepting of all, not just those with disabilities, mental health problems, and cognitive impairments,” he said.
He said it was time to address the “problem of stigma and stigma is a very serious problem” for the Mortensen family.
“We need to stop the stigma that we’re living with for the entire family and for everyone else.”
The Mortensons have also spoken out against the use of quarantine to “punish” people with disabilities.
“The government has said that we have no reason to be under quarantine,” Mr James Mortenson told ABC Radio Brisbane.
“If you are in a community where there are no people who have a disease, you are under quarantine and we’re not. “
We are all part of the same community, so we can be together.””
If you are in a community where there are no people who have a disease, you are under quarantine and we’re not.
We are all part of the same community, so we can be together.”
We are all going to die together.
“So it’s a very sad state of affairs.”
In a statement on the Mortenson family website, Mr Morterson said his father, uncle and two younger siblings were in “complete shock” and his “heart goes out to the community”.
He said the family had received death threats and had been told that their “future is in jeopardy”.
“We have been inundated with threats and we’ve had calls and emails, and people who we do not know, threatening to kill our family and family members,” Mr Robert Mortenson wrote.
We have to fight that stigma. “
As much as we’d like to have escaped quarantine, we have not escaped the stigma of it.
It is happening everywhere in the world. “
You are not alone.
I was in a school and I would say to the teachers, ‘Don’t worry, I won’t go out.'” “
When I was growing up I heard people say, ‘I’ll never go out in public again’.
I was in a school and I would say to the teachers, ‘Don’t worry, I won’t go out.'”
“It is a fact.
“This is a pandemic and we must all get together to protect each other.” “
Mr Mortonsons father, George, who died in 2014, said the stigma surrounding the coronvirus was “outrageous” and said the community needed to get on with it. “

Mr Mortonsons father, George, who died in 2014, said the stigma surrounding the coronvirus was “outrageous” and said the community needed to get on with it.
“My dad was an icon for the Australian community,” he told ABC News Breakfast.
“People have said that I should be ashamed of my dad and my father should be a saint. “
“Well, I was proud of him and I will never be ashamed. “
“Let’s get on.” “
Mr James, the elder Mortenson brother, said his parents had a “perfectly good life” before the virus. “

Mr James, the elder Mortenson brother, said his parents had a “perfectly good life” before the virus.
He was a proud father, a “great man” and a “loving and caring husband and father”, he said in a statement.
The statement added that Mr Mortensson was now a “highly respected member of the community”, having been “one of the first to be diagnosed with Ebola”.
“It saddens me that I cannot be with my family as they struggle to cope with the devastating effects of this disease,” he wrote.
The Australian Medical Association (AMA) said it had received “a number of reports” from members of the public who had received messages or text messages from members or family members about the Mortons’ health.
“AMA encourages all Australians to be vigilant and to be mindful of their own health and well-being, particularly those with vulnerable and mentally ill family
