Science Sam “COVID-19: Impacts on Work & School” | NSB Engage Virtual Webinar

How do we continue our daily lives now that classrooms and workplaces are opening up?  Dr. Samantha Yammine helps us clear our questions about what we read and hear in social media, from government, and public health.  

She answers the FAQs about COVID-19, explains further on how our brains react when we are anxious and how to deal with it, as we slowly transition back to face-to-face 

In her presentations, she provides tools for assessing risk, spotting misinformation, coping with anxiety, and having informed discussions with friends and family. 

Here’s takeaways from her recent webinar: 

  • Unlike prior waves, we have the tools to keep ourselves safe and to end the pandemic. It isn’t over yet, but it WILL end. 
  • Use this simple rhyme to remember for what you can control: Time, space, people, place, cover your face, vaccinate
  • Vaccines protect you against the most severe outcomes #vaccineswork
