PREPARATION, NOT PANIC

The links on this page are links to reliable government resources for use in gaining the most current, accurate information. While we realize these are stressful times for many, the best thing to do is to have access to what the experts are telling all of us. There are so many stories and “advice” available on the internet running the gamut from partially true to totally false, it is important to get the facts from trusted resources. We cannot afford to have gossip, rumors, and scare-tactics circulating. It is critical that the resources you and your team have access to are as accurate as possible.

PLEASE rely on the official, trusted sources for information and not secondhand knowledge. Rumors and bad information spread faster than any disease out there, which only causes distress.

Seeing the Good

In the days and weeks ahead, it is imperative that our country, our state, and our communities pull together and use our influence to bend the curve on COVID-19 cases. Many of our Region’s businesses are already providing strong leadership, and through outreach, policy and compassion, have helped workers and families navigate this crisis a bit more easily. Look for ways to turn this in to a positive for you and your community and family.
