COVID-19: Don’t Panic, Be Prepared

The Tidelines mantra of “Be prepared!” as outlined in our hurricane hints can apply to other disasters, ones we know are coming or those that have not yet materialized. Although we don’t know how the coronavirus or COVID-19 will affect our community, it pays to plan ahead. You may find some helpful hints in an article from NPR accessed here. In addition, some of our hurricane hints would prove useful if the coronavirus hits Charleston. You can access those on our website by clicking here and choosing the Hurricane Hints dropdown menu. Further, Dr. Peter Lin, a Canadian physician who shares his expertise on CBC News, does an excellent job of explaining the coronavirus in this video.

Be prepared, stay safe!
