WITHOUT these standard #publichealth measures, we'll see new hot-spots emerge, watch infections & deaths balloon, & will be right back where we were in mid-March in the US.

3) Fund #Publichealth infrastructure
4) Until then... maintain masks & social distancing to keep yourself *and your community* safe
