Health Brief

May 11, 2020

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend despite the cold snap on Mother’s Day. One thing for certain about Wisconsin…if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change. If you took advantage of the sunshine on Saturday or Mother’s Day by going out and about, I want to remind you, of the hazards of Covid-19. Those at greatest risk to have serious complications from Covid-19 are older adults and those with pre-existing comorbidities (other chronic diseases which impact their health). This could be you, your friends, or your roof mates. In hopes of keeping everyone safe and healthy, it would be beneficial for all, that everyone monitors themselves.
