Jennifer, our resident infectious disease expert knows better than anyone how important it is to #FlattenTheCurve right now. Besides the science and data, here's the personal reason why she's staying home.

"I stay home for healthcare workers fighting the good fight, like my friend Mary who is an ICU nurse at Georgetown University Hospital or Karen who does virtual medical evaluations of NIH employees working on a coronavirus vaccine. My neighborhood garden club is celebrating its 50th Anniversary, so our inaugural members are in their 70’s and 80’s. I remain at home so that when we are able to meet again, we won’t be missing anyone."

The heart warming reason Bernie, our Director of Finance, is staying home to #flattenthecurve.

I stay at home to honor my late sister, Mary Theresa, who was a very dedicated registered nurse. I have been thinking of her often during this pandemic. I know for certain that she would be on the frontlines alongside all of the very brave healthcare workers helping those in need. Plus, she would tell me to STAY HOME!...I always did what my big sister said.
