We are living in very anxious times. That’s why now more than ever we need to take care of one another.

What You Can Do
You probably already have been inundated with advice from medical experts, government officials, and others charged with protecting public health, such as washing your hands frequently, following social distancing protocols, and even staying home as much as possible. We can’t add anything more other than to say this:
Now is the time to take care of each other. Call your family members daily. Check on your neighbors, especially any elderly or disabled people in your area, to make sure they have what they need. Sometimes companionship or a kind word is the best thing you can provide.
In the end, we are all in this together. If we focus on caring for each other, in time we all can come out of this better, stronger, and more united as a community and as a nation.
