COVID-19

2020 will go down in history as the year of COVID-19. We’ve all dealt with COVID-19 as a constant presence in our lives since February. And, as we expected, it’s not going away completely until a vaccine is fully developed and distributed on a broad scale.

And because of the colder weather, we can reasonably expect an increase in cases. Most respiratory illnesses, the flu included, return as the weather cools and we spend more time indoors. There’s no reason to expect COVID-19 will behave differently.   So, what should you be doing to minimize your COVID-19 risk this fall and winter?
