Covid-19 Resources:  Update April 21, 2020

Friends, together we will get through this challenging time as we all learn to live differently.   Right now, I think the best we can do is help slow down the spread of Covid-19.  Mayor Tecklenburg is asking us to stay home, limit trips to essential services, call MUSC Telehealth if you develop symptoms, and be a good neighbor by not hoarding groceries and household supplies.  That’s in addition to washing your hands for 20 seconds, avoiding touching your face, distancing yourself at least 6 feet, wearing a mask, covering your cough, disinfecting surfaces, and sharing information from trusted resources.

I’ve compiled some helpful resources for health, education, and economic, safety, and community information.
