In addition, the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) has asked people to avoid discretionary travel so that we can slow the spread of the virus — a concept known as flattening the curve.

Hello All.. It’s been awhile since I last posted!?! had to take a break from it, but feel the need to encourage folks to...
