  • Take a media break - stay informed, but limit your time on social media
  • Take action - especially by practicing good health habits, handwashing with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
  • Be aware of assumptions - don't let fear or panic guide your actions
  • Practice what works - Do more of what works to relive stress and reduce anxiety
  • Get the right kind of support - if you or someone you know is in need of mental health support, including resources to help manage anxiety, please call the Anne Arundel County Mental Health Agency Crisis Response Warmline at 410-768-5522.
