Lean on each other and put in the extra effort to stay connected.

The current coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused a lot of stress and disruption in our lives. In a very short amount of time, our daily routines have drastically changed.

The steps we are taking to help prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19 may be seemingly straightforward (washing hands, staying home as much as possible, and keeping our physical distance when we go out), but their practical impacts are huge and living this way will take some adjusting to. 

Maintaining our mental health during this time is going to require extra effort, but we can and will get through this together.
