As Dr. Henry mentioned, whether in our social lives, at work, in at school, adjusting to this new normal will have some challenges. We need to be slow and thoughtful and watch carefully. We are here to work with you through this new chapter. We all need to continue to commit to the “golden rules” that will keep us safe.
Be safe. Be well.
