The COVID-19 Craze
News & social media can sometimes spread false statements and cause more anxiety. The only reliable source I would use is The CDC, which is the Center for Disease control and Prevention. You can find them at www.CDC.gov
What are the symptoms of the coronavirus disease?
The most common symptoms are fever (100.4 or higher), cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has been very stressful for everyone. Fear and anxiety about this disease has been overwhelming and has caused strong emotions for everyone especially those like myself who are treating patients. Coping with this stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger💪🏼
What are some of your quarantine self-care tips?
Here are a few of mine👇🏼
🦠Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to the news, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
🦠Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy & get plenty of sleep
🦠Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
🦠Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
