COVID-19 Precautions

My policy about COVID-19 can be found by clicking here.

Else, we're all a little anxious about this, and rightly so. This is a challenging time.

We do not eliminate risk in life, but there are things we can do to minimize it. Do tune to what the CDC and our local health departments advise in terms of safety precautions.

But I might suggest that you limit the amount of time you spend on the internet following this story? Given that developments are happening quite quickly, it pays to find out what they are. But try not to ratchet up your anxiety unnecessarily.

Checking the internet once a day is probably enough.

Remember that there are many things about this situation that we do not control. The trick is to focus on what you can control, and accept those things that you can't.

Hang in there. Eventually life will get back to normal.
