The last several months have been an unprecedented time for all of us. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to alter our work schedules, our social interactions, school for our children and our shopping habits. For health care providers, this is an extremely stressful time of caring for those who have become sick and worrying that you may bring it home to your family.
