The Disease That’s Overtaking The World: Covid-19
By Kylie Kirkpatrick
The recent outbreak of the coronavirus began in Wuhan, China in December 2019. The virus has resulted in more than 800,000 infections and 38,700 deaths globally. The government is telling the people to stay home to prevent the spread of the disease more so than it already has. The United States and Italy are the only two countries that have registered more than 100,000 cases.
Is this something we should be concerned about? The answer is yes. What started as elderly people being the higher percentage of dying from it has now turned to everyone and anyone can get it. There are now almost as many deaths of healthy young people as there are elderly. We need to take all of the precautions we can to be safe, clean, and healthy which means wash your hands, try not to go out into public, and avoid things like touching your face.

Your Moving Advice
Tips on Making an Essentials Box
Before your move, it is important to come up with an essentials box filled with things you need for the next day or necessities for every day use.
Your essentials box should contain the items you want to have access to at all times during the move and/or immediately after arriving in your new home. It should travel with you, so that you have your essentials at hand during the trip and don’t have to wait for the moving truck to arrive and be unloaded before you can do anything in your new place.
It’s a good idea to pack one large survival box for the whole family that contains some hygiene items (toilet paper, hand soap, dish soap, all-purpose cleaner, paper towels, rags, trash bags, etc.). Towels and bathroom essentials, bed linens, plastic utensils and plates, snacks, drinks, medications, an emergency kit, some basic tools (scissors, all-purpose cutting knife, a can-opener and a bottle-opener, a flashlight, a portable tool kit, etc.), pet items(if applicable), games and other necessities that will allow you to provide basic meals, ensure good hygiene, present some entertainment options, and deal with minor emergencies during the relocation trip and immediately after arrival in your new home.
