Remember,  the World Health Organization reminds us, “Most people will recover!  People with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.”

We know planning might not be on your radar right now but it can also be a good way to focus on the recovery and future!  “Planning Your Post Coronavirus Travel”
