Flattening the curve - Why is it important?

You’ve probably heard this talked about a lot in the past weeks. Take a look at the image - The tall, skinny curve is not good – it means that a lot of people will get sick at once in a short period of time because we don’t take enough steps to prevent the virus from spreading from person to person.

Most people won’t get sick enough to need a hospital. But those who do could overwhelm the number of beds and care teams that our nation’s hospitals have available

Flattening it as a TEAM helps ALL individuals

If our communities take steps to slow the virus’s spread, that means the number of cases of COVID-19 will extend out across a longer period of time. As the curve shows, the number of cases at any given time doesn’t cross the dotted line of the capacity of our nation’s health care system to help everyone who’s very sick.

At the end of the of the day…

Actions taken by your local communities and businesses to cancel events, close offices and limit hours of operations will assist in these important efforts.
