    Updates & Additional Questions since the Web Meeting on 4/2/20
    Updated information is the change in CDC recommendations to use a mask.  There was more talk about just talking as a way that the virus might spread.
    Still the most important things to do are:

    ·         Social (physical distancing)-6 feet rule;

    ·         frequent hand washing;

    ·         also wash high touch areas;

    ·         stay home as much as possible

    ·         Face masks prevent you from spreading the virus especially early on when you might be asymptomatic, but face masks do not prevent you from getting it so please do the important health care measures

    Please take care of yourselves: refer to the wellness links provided earlier

    This is hard to do, but necessary to take care of ourselves
