COVID-19 Treatment: Where Are We?
As some states lift stay-at-home orders amid growing numbers of COVID-19 cases, scientists
worldwide are working on potential treatments and vaccines. The complexity of drug development and manufacturing makes it unlikely that a new therapy specific to coronavirus will be developed soon. However, many existing medications used to treat
other conditions are being touted as potential remedies for COVID-19.

Focus: Mental health
Returning to work: Prioritizing mental health
From hand washing to mask wearing and split shifts, employers are implementing prevention measures to help employees and patrons remain healthy as businesses open back up. While physical infection prevention is important, employees should also take time to focus on their mental well-being. These simple techniques can be used every day to ease mental burden:
1. Take five deep, slow breaths five times per day. Try breathing when you wash your hands.
2. Get at least seven hours of sleep per night to boost your immune system and brain.
3. Purposefully practice mindfulness at least once per day.
4. Eat a healthful diet and avoid too much alcohol.
5. Create a plan with your family to ease into the back-to-work transition.
Coming back to work in the midst of a pandemic can be unpredictable. With different working conditions, new sanitation protocols, and increased public exposure, you may feel increased stress or anxiety. The typical workday does not look the same as it did six months ago, but by understanding the safety precautions that are in place and practicing good mental health, the
new way of work may not seem so bad.
