Helping you keep your calm

So much about COVID-19 IS unknown, so feeling a little fear, stress or anxiety is normal, and totally expected. So, through it all, be kind to yourself and remember you’re not alone.


It can help to remember:


  • It’s normal to feel anxious about safety for yourself, your family, friends and even strangers.
  • Deep sadness, grief and anger are normal reactions.
  • Owning your feelings can help you cope and stay strong.
  • Focusing on your strengths and abilities can help you deal.
  • It’s healthy to accept help from community programs and resources.
  • Everyone has different ways of coping and meeting their needs.

There are also many healthy things you can do to ease your stress, like limiting the time you spend watching the news, talking with a counselor, getting good rest and staying in touch with family and friends.


You can get current data and resources on COVID-19 by visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
