 Keeping Things On Hand In Case You Have Coronavirus

 The Country Journal asked CRNA for some help in figuring out what people need handy in an emergency "Coronavirus Kit"  if they get Covid-19 and have to quarantine at home. CRNA had some great ideas, because various Indian Health organizations had already come up with items for tribal members. CRNA put the items together, using their staff, and sent the completed kits back to the village tribal administrators for distribution in the villages.

Here's what a kit might include, to help you weather an incident of coronavirus at home:
