COVID-19 Cases Spike in Florida, What Can We Do?

COVID-19 Cases Spike in Florida, What Can We Do?

According to state data, 31% of children tested for COVID-19 in Florida have been tested positive. This is a shocking statistic and shows that the spread is not slowing down. Parents are (needless to say) concerned, and with the status of if school will be in-person or online in the fall semester being up in the air still, frustration and impatience is increasing.
Florida also just set a new state virus death record with 156 people dying from the virus in one day. So the question is; what do we do? We are in one of the most uncertain times in history, and we want (and need) answers. Here’s a breakdown of what you can (and shouldn’t do) during this time:

1. DO: Clean and sanitize – As we’ve heard over and over, cleaning and sanitizing is extremely important to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Keep your hands clean, especially when you are coming in from outside.

2. DON’T: Worry – Yes this may sound impossible, but try your best to refrain from worrying. Being under stress is proven to lower our immune system and overall just makes everything worse; from your mood, to your performance at work, and more. Try to keep a sound mind and keep as positive as possible. After all, worrying does nothing positive.

3. DO: Wear masks in public places – It has been proven that masks aren’t great for our health, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Please wear a mask when you go anywhere in public – not only for yourself, but for others as well.
4. DON’T: Forget about you or your child’s future – We are going through one of the worst pandemics in history and that is a hugely daunting reality, but don’t neglect the plans you or your child have for your/your child’s future. It’s very easy to forget about grades, college admissions or test preparation but these important aspects will remain. If you are nervous about your child attending school in-person, there are online learning opportunities you can utilize with us.
