It Takes All of Us to Fight COVID-19

 
 

We're sure you've been hearing health care experts say that we need to "flatten the curve." What does that mean? It means we all need to act now and take precautions to keep the number of COVID-19 cases at a manageable level.

The more people who get sick at the same time, the more resources we will need quickly. Our health care system can only handle so many cases at a time. If medical professionals become overwhelmed, lives that otherwise could have been saved will be lost.

Learn about what you can do to save lives.
