Virology For Dummies

As we continue to navigate the daily changes regarding our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, I have taken a moment to pause and reflect on the person I would like to see emerge on the other side of this.  One gift that has been presented to me - is time. While I am still working, many of the other day-to-day tasks and activities are on hold.  It is this time that has helped me to understand there are areas where I can gain more knowledge and try to help to my family, friends, and co-workers understand the finer points of the current pandemic. 

All too often, it is the seemingly miniscule pieces of information that can reframe a person’s perspective of a stressful or threatening situation.  It is also crucial that each of us takes every opportunity to bend ourselves before the world does to sharpen our response to difficult situations. I decided that I needed to improve my understanding of how a virus functions. Except, I needed to explain this to my family with normal words lol.
