As many more states have announced confirmed cases of COVID-19, American leaders, employers, medical professionals, and everyday citizens across the country are ramping up efforts to contain the spread of the illness . Colleges and universities have joined primary and secondary schools in canceling classes, businesses of all sizes have requested employees work remotely, and regional events have been canceled or postponed. We recognize that the current response to this health emergency has created real challenges for Americans, and we are here to help you find the support you need to cope with any anxiety or uncertainty that may impact your ability to feel prepared for this situation.
In this special resource section, you’ll learn about coronaviruses, find resources related to the current spread of the illness, and discover the steps you should take to prepare your family for the daily living challenges that may arise if the virus should spread to your local community.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) is a potentially deadly and highly contagious virus that can be transmitted through human-to-human contact. If you are an older American or suffer from a preexisting condition, including heart or respiratory issues, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised that you stay at home as much as possible, especially if confirmed cases of COVID-19 exist in your local area. Staying aware of the current situation, actively working to maintain your overall health and wellbeing, and preparing for a potential outbreak in your local community are the best steps you can take right now.
As always, you should follow the guidelines and information provided by the agencies responsible for monitoring and responding to concerns of this nature. Trusting your family’s health and wellbeing to untrusted sources of information may unnecessarily aggravate concerns or worry younger family members who do not have a full understanding of the situation.
