The Coronavirus Pandemic is real and it is scary on many different levels. With news of the pandemic spreading and the recommendations on social distancing getting broader, it can be hard to feel certain or safe about anything.
As troubling as it is to watch the unprecedented market decline, we need to maintain our health and the health and safety of our family, friends, and neighbors as the number one priority. COVID-19 which emerged late in 2019 in China has spread rapidly worldwide since then and is a global pandemic. The measures taken by leaders around the globe have been strong leaving most children without a classroom to go to, many parents working from home or some without a job altogether and investors panicking about what is to come.
This disruption to daily life and to our psyches is substantial. The coming weeks could be difficult, but these measures are practical and prudent.
