Other General Suggestions
Be prepared for a minimum two weeks of isolation—unfortunately, most likely longer at this point. Avoid hoarding – we are all in this together. Don’t forget to include pet supplies! Have prescriptions filled and spare glasses ready—just like you would if you were preparing for a hurricane.
Check-in with your union sisters and brothers to see who needs help of any kind—especially someone to talk to.
