Northeastern University’s Global Resilience Institute has just launched a short online course that provides life-saving skills for dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak. Please share this with your colleagues, families, and friends.

The course is on a web platform that allows universal access.  We are hoping that corporations, companies, and organizations will push this out to their employees. With everyone studying online and working online, this seems to be the best way to have a trusted source get this critical information directly to as many as possible with the encouragement that they spend the under one-hour to work their way through the self-navigating, 9 short-modules for the course:

  1. Introduction to Being Safe and Resilient
  2. Mastering Washing Your Hands
  3. Avoid Touching Your Face to Reduce Risk
  4. Managing Your Household
  5. Disinfecting Your Surfaces
  6. Properly Using Masks and Gloves
  7. Navigating Public Spaces
  8. Staying Connected with Older Relatives, Neighbors, and Friends
  9. Enhancing Community Resilience by Becoming a COVID-19 Leader

In addition to providing this urgently needed life-saving information for dealing with the rapid spread of COVID-19, we believe that this will help to reduce anxiety as well. Ideally it will inspire and empower all who take it to reach out to others to share what they have learned. The final module in the online course is a call-to-action.
