Living in coastal Georgia, it’s imperative to have medical and emergency
plans in place in preparation for a hurricane. Hurricane season lasts
from June 1-November 30, and being prepared for a weather emergency during
this time is the best way to remain safe before, during and after the
storm. This year will be especially challenging as we will be preparing
for, sheltering during and recovering after hurricanes during a pandemic.
COVID-19 affects everyone, the way we live our daily lives and run our businesses.
Everything is more difficult this year because of coronavirus, and hurricane
season is no exception. But just because something is more difficult doesn’t
mean it can’t be done; it just means that it may take more effort
and time to accomplish, so we encourage you to begin your hurricane preparations
now (if you haven’t already.) It’s just as important, if not
more so, to be prepared for a hurricane while also remaining vigilant
in your efforts to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
