In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?
It helped me understand that simply by increasing the frequency of hand-washing, I could help prevent the spread of the virus if I came into contact with it.
When faced with something as overwhelming as a pandemic, it's easy to feel helpless, so the idea that you can take a small practical action to help others is really powerful.
I thought it was a wonderful way of reducing a macro crisis right down to a micro action.
