Event: Resources for Your Protection
As cases of COVID-19 continue to grow around the world, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) remains the best resource for information about the pandemic. Its website (see below) provides information for individuals with higher risk of severe illness, including older adults and individuals with underlying health conditions. It also provides guidance on using face coverings to help prevent further spread of the disease.
If you are in Nigeria and running low on critical prescription medication, please note many pharmacies remain open.
