Coronavirus Resources

The World Health Organization describes coronaviruses as a family of viruses that cause respiratory infections. COVID-19 is a novel virus within the coronavirus family that was first identified in Wuhan, China in December of 2019. The virus was first declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020, and since that time, the virus has spread around the world. We know that this may be a concerning time for you and your loved ones and that there are many unknowns. We have compiled resources from Harvard as well as other sources and hope this is a great starting point to answer your questions and ease your fears on a number of topics related to COVID-19.
