More than 16 million cases of COVID-19 have been diagnosed to date, with the virus claiming more than 650,000 lives. While the scientific community fervently seeks a cure and/or preventative vaccine, the spread of COVID-19 will inevitably continue. Thankfully, we can collectively help to reduce the impact of coronavirus through simple actions, which reduce the risk of contracting or unintentionally spreading COVID-19. By wearing masks, staying six feet or more from others, frequently disinfecting common surfaces and washing our hands for at least twenty seconds, we can slow the spread of coronavirus and save the lives of local citizens.
