No one wants to be quarantined inside, but it’s every person’s duty to to follow CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 in order to protect the most vulnerable. Staying at home is an act of love.

Instead of complaining about being “stuck inside,” consider being stuck inside a hospital as a result of the virus. If you’re home, it means you’re safe. Keeping this outlook is essential during the pandemic, and in everyday life.

Yes, businesses public operations are forced closed, and the economy is suffering, but is money worth more than human life?

Changing your outlook in a situation can reduce stress, improve the quality of sleep, positively influence your family’s, and most importantly, keeps others safe.

If everyone across the Twin Cities takes the shutdown seriously, it will be over quicker and our hospitals will be better equipped to handle patients.

As said perfectly by governor Tim Walz, “We must take bold action to save the lives of Minnesotans. Having served as a Command Sergeant Major in the Army National Guard, I know the importance of having a plan. While the virus will still be here when this order ends, this action will slow the spread of COVID-19 and give Minnesota time to ready for battle.”

We’re all in this situation together, and Minnesota always proves to remain strong in times of crisis. Changing your perspective will help your mental and how you handle the current situation. Instead of focusing on all the negatives, invest your time creating positives. Maybe this extra time at home gives you quality time with your family that was missing before. Perhaps you have a side project or a hobby that you’ve been wanting to work on. How about a home remodeling project at home or in another location. Has your business considered remodeling?

If it’s the two latter goals, our MCC experts are here to help. We’re offering virtual consultations to all our clients to begin the planning.

Though this doesn’t mean you’re actually not allowed to leave your home. Minnesotans may leave their residences only to perform any of the following activities, and while doing so, they should practice social distancing:

· Health and safety activities, such as obtaining emergency services or medical supplies

· Outdoor activities, such as walking, hiking, running, biking, hunting, or fishing

· Necessary Supplies and Services, such as getting groceries, gasoline, or carry-out

· Essential and interstate travel, such as returning to a home from outside this state
