We are currently experiencing a global pandemic event caused by a communicable novel (new) virus. COVID-19 has already demonstrated its effect on our daily lives, our routines, and even our mental health. One of the best coping tools for anxiety is information discernment. Gathering information, verifying the accuracy of the information, and then specific planning to manage the information is an effective anxiety reduction strategy. We have invited Imperial County Public Health Registered Nurse Collett Ashurst, RN to discuss all things COVID-19. How it is spread, what symptoms are experienced, how to suppress the spread, and how to manage life and stress levels in the midst of an infectious disease outbreak. Join us and learn the best ways to proceed in the days ahead of us all.
