CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - LET'S START WITH 4
Earlier this week, as I entered Costco, one of the greeters asked me if I wanted my grocery cart "wiped down". I was touched by their thoughtfulness. Later as I shopped the reality of the impact of COVID-19 presented in a less assuming way. Costco's usual abundant supply of paper towels had diminished to just a few stacks in a corner. In another part of the store, I found one container of sanitary wipes.
The spread of the COVID-19 has us all concerned about our health. Many individuals are questioning whether they should keep their commitments to travel. Whether it is to a family event, or a professional gathering, there is no one answer that will be right for everyone. This is a moment of Self-Care and Health that requires careful deliberation, especially if one falls within a high risk group (the elderly, or those with compromised immune systems and respiratory illness). Please do not hesitate to contact your physician if you need help in making that decision.
