Are you stressed out about contracting COVID-19? You’re certainly not alone!

Dr. Laurie Blanscet joins us to explain how stress and anxiety weaken our immune system, and why reducing stress and anxiety – along with following social distancing and hygiene guidelines – is our best defense to prevent contracting or spreading the virus, and stop living in fear!
