STOP THE SPREAD OF RUMORS
Are you in a COVID-19 craze and frustrated with not knowing what to do or not to do? Is it just easier to stay at home instead of trying to figure out the latest information? Have you questioned what you hear on TV or read on the web through various media sources?
As cases of COVID-19 are on the rise, it is imperative to stick to the facts and base your judgment on a neutral source such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). With the 1918 influenza dating back to the most severe pandemic in recent history, almost 100 years ago, it’s fair to say that the majority of us have not gone through anything like this. We are all in this together, and it is important that we are on the same page.
The following article from the CDC stresses the importance of knowing the facts of the virus and doing our part to educate ourselves and help to stop the spread of this devastating disease. Learn more here and make a positive difference with your decisions.
Touchmark has created the below FAQ to make it easier for people to find the latest information about changes within our communities, as we work with national, provincial, and local health agencies and professionals to combat COVID-19.
