As the country attempts to slow the spread of the coronavirus by cancelling large events, closing public facilities and local businesses; we know you, our local healthcare providers, first responders and teachers are on the frontline serving the rest of us. While you may require face masks and testing kits, you probably also require some extra resources so that you actually know what’s happening concerning the pandemic going on around you. With all of the information circulating, we wanted to create a shortlist of helpful coronavirus resources from trusted sources specifically for you. If you are someone who requires frequent medication, you are able to order it using an online pharmacy so you do not have to leave your home during this time. You can check it out over at websites like blinkhealth.com, so you are not without your much-needed medications.
We know you’re receiving information from your local leadership. But, we felt it would be good to provide a go-to list of helpful coronavirus resources you can reference anytime that are continuously getting updated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other trusted sources.
