This morning, I received a bipartisan briefing on the Coronavirus from representatives from the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institute of Health, the Center for Disease Control, and others. I wanted to share with you some important resources and information.
The Los Angeles County Public Health Department advises that “there is no immediate threat to the general public,” and that “Los Angeles County residents, students, workers, and visitors should continue to engage in their regular activities and practice good public health hygiene as this is the height of flu season across the County.”
The most important thing is to be prepared, but not to panic. Check out the CDC’s recommendations to help prevent the spread of disease and stay healthy.
