CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) RESOURCES
Across America and throughout the world, everyone is feeling the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. This crisis continues to alter our daily lives and affect our loved ones. It is critically important that we take the necessary steps to limit the spread of this disease, especially for our elderly populations. We should all be practicing social distancing and avoiding large social gatherings. High risk groups are depending on populations of low-risk people to aide in curbing the spread of this deadly virus. Avoiding public spaces, staying indoors and avoiding contact with others can help to slow the spread of the virus and protect those who are most vulnerable among us.
According to Florida Health, adults 65 and older and those with underlying medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease are more likely to develop serious illness.
