Many have struggled with a range of emotions during this Quarantine Process. It is normal to feel stressed, and somewhat anxious as our communities begin to reopen. Today's newsletter will discuss " Ways to Decrease your Stress Levels "

The City of Houston has also issued a mandatory order to wear masks in public, which will begin on April 27th, 2020. It will last for 30 days, and apply to people ten and older. Please share this information with your friends and family on " How to Make and Wear your Face Mask ". Dr. Vital will demonstrate in the Video below.
