Learning to dance in the rain

“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.”

There are many things in life that we are not in control of, yet we find ways to combat the issues that we are faced with. In recent news, society across the world has been going through a pandemic that we would’ve never thought would happen. Something so simple as not washing our hands or providing clean workspaces and areas has resulted in today’s largest outbreak of a virus named COVID-19 (The CoronaVirus). So, we ask you now, who would’ve thought?

 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is a virus that makes individuals sick, usually with a mild to moderate upper respiratory tract illness like a common cold or flu. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person contact and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Due to this, the CDC suggests that gatherings of 10 or more people be avoided and instead to practice social distancing during this time.

Now you may be asking, what is social distancing? Recently referenced by the CDC as the best strategy in preventing the spread of COVID-19, social distancing is recommended to decrease the spread of a highly contagious disease. By “remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet) from one another when possible,” the CDC hopes to reduce the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible.

We understand that this is a tough time that everyone is going through, we hope that some of the information mentioned in this blog is helpful. Following national precautions are very important during this time to ensure that we can overcome this epidemic together, one step at a time. And always remember, “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain”.
