Key concerns from Nurse Kell:
Your own personal and family health, staying healthy, resting and trying not to stress out will keep all of us healthier. Take caution regarding potential injuries in the home.
There is still a pervasive narrative that young people are not at risk of injury from the Coronavirus. When you hear a young person talking complacently about the dangers of contracting the coronavirus, please remind them to take this seriously. Young people are becoming very sick.
