We are all dealing with the COVID-19 virus, one way or another, either health-wise or economically. While the politicians argue between the state and federal levels and the doctors argue against everyone that isn't one.
In this hour, it’s best to be prepared, so let us define prepare/prepared.
made ready for use.
ready to do or deal with something.
make (something) ready for use or consideration
make (someone) ready or able to do or deal with something.
be willing to do something.
By the above meanings, this is an action plan set up by a person or persons to deal with the situation they can't avoid. That's exactly what we are dealing with now. Even if you wanted to you couldn't avoid it with the effects it’s having on the world. So were you prepared? If not then how do we get prepared because we are going to be dealing with this, some news outlets say for another 12-18 months!
The best way is to stay informed with facts, no hearsay or assumptions. Listen to the orders that are coming down from your local, state and nation authority. Like them or not they hold the power over law and order. To go outside of that or even against that can make things much worse for you and your loved ones. Next is to stay up to date with what the medical professionals are saying doctors, scientists and nurses have the facts on how to avoid spreading the virus, detecting symptoms and what to do if you are infected or exposed to someone that was or is positive. After that be prepared to stock up on your staple foods and water because you never know if your city or state says you have to stay in the house for weeks at a time. That way you don't have to run to the stores every other day because you are not well stocked.
Last but not least don't panic, let us define panic
sudden uncontrollable fear or anxiety, often causing wildly unthinking behavior.
widespread financial or commercial apprehension provoking hasty action.
a frenzied hurry to do something.
From the meaning above we don't want to be doing any of these because this will cause serious and even deadly consequences for ourselves, our family and the organization of the society itself. If you are panicking and I can understand why, just take a few deep breaths, pray (if you do) and then prepare a list of what you need and don't have right now and try your best to get them.
