HOW-TO RESTART AND RECOVER YOUR ENTERPRISE
The COVID-19 pandemic is leading to a radical redesign of everyday social and economic activities around the world.

WHAT YOU CAN DO
In order to have the greatest success in flattening the curve and delaying cases of COVID-19, the skills that each of these educational modules seeks to develop must be practiced by as many of us as possible. As an individual, by sharing these modules with your friends and family through social media, email, or phone. We all have a role in helping to elevate awareness of these vital practices to make us safe. We also need to improve our capacity to help vulnerable populations who will be most dramatically impacted by the disruptions associated with the drastic measures that governments are taking to try and slow the spread of the virus.
