The COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak is a difficult and trying time for everyone, including people in recovery and suffering from mental health issues.

While many of the peer groups and other support groups for people in recovery are not able to meet during the outbreak, their recovery must continue and the need for support is still there.

A number of digital resources offer diverse online support to individuals seeking connection and engagement during times of social distancing. You can access the resources here: http://ow.ly/xKXw50zGxBi

Contact tracing is a key strategy to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

If you are called by a contact tracer, they will ask about your health and any potential symptoms you may have. They will never ask for a social security number, financial information, or personal details unrelated to COVID-19.

Early detection is key! Know what to look for when it comes to breast cancer. Getting a yearly mammogram and being aware of any changes in the way your breasts look and feel is the best way to be proactive about your breast health. Although breast cancer screening cannot prevent breast cancer, it can help find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat. Talk to your doctor about which breast cancer screening tests are right for you, and when you should have them.

The Harford County Health Department Cancer Prevention Program offers no cost breast and cervical cancer screenings to eligible Maryland residents. Call 443-643-3767 to find out if you are eligible, or submit your interest using the form below.

If you missed last night's press conference, here are the main points. Remember to be mindful and stay healthy!

Effective Friday, May 15, at 5:00 pm, Maryland will move from a Stay at Home order to a Safer at Home public health advisory.

"I want to be very clear: while lifting the Stay at Home order and gradually moving into Stage One of our recovery is a positive step forward, it does not mean that we are safe or that this crisis is over," said Governor Larry Hogan.

Marylanders, particularly older and more vulnerable adults, are strongly advised to continue staying home as much as possible. Employers should continue to encourage telework for their employees. Individuals should continue wearing face coverings in indoor public areas, retail stores, and on public transportation. Additionally, Marylanders should continue practicing physical distancing, continue avoiding gatherings of more than 10 people, keep washing their hands often, and frequently sanitize high-touch areas.

While Governor Hogan is now allowing outdoor activities such as tennis, fishing, boating, camping, and golfing, it is important to still keep your distance, wash your hands, and avoid congregating.
