It seems to be more clear than ever that we are facing the most historic health care challenge to our world in the last century with the spread of this novel virus called COVID-19. The world of immediate information at our fingertips has both positive and negative effects, but try to stay well informed since changes come frequently.

At this time, the best advice is to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water for 20 seconds or more several times a day, avoid touching your face, avoid contact with those who might be ill, avoid large group settings, and if possible, work from home.

The availability of accurate, efficient testing is woefully lacking but the government and private companies are doing their best to make them more readily available.
