No words needed. This illustrates the outcome of distancing and “flattening the curve.”

With everything that’s going on with the COVID-19 crisis, I think we could use some fun right now.
Let’s have a CHALLENGE where the residents of each house creates a poster for their home that’s full of information regarding COVID-19: “maintain social distancing (6 feet minimum) for roommates and staff”, “remember to wash your hands”, “Check for 100.0 temp”, “No visitors”, “don’t come in if you have a cough or fever”, etc….
Not only will this serve as an educational tool for healthy practices, but it will also encourage everyone to do our part with preventing the spread of the virus.
Participating houses are asked to display their completed posters in their house or on their door AND to share the completed poster on the STARS Facebook page so everyone can see (and hopefully learn something new)!
Let’s make these posters bright and colorful and eye catching and we’ll pick our favorite next week and announce it on our STARS Facebook Page!
You can find us on Facebook by clicking here.
Let’s all do our part to help with the COVID-19 crisis and have some fun while we’re doing it!
