How Does a Pandemic Affect Prevention Efforts?
Everyone is worried about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), but it’s important to stay calm and remain mindful in dealing with it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are closely following the situation, and they are working to keep everyone up to date on what they need to know.

In an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, many people are struggling to establish a new-normal for their employees, communities, and businesses. With more communities working remotely than ever before, maintaining a productive and healthy work-life balance is necessary. While it’s important to stay on track, staying mentally and physically healthy are top priority.
