Times are very uncertain right now with increasing awareness about COVID-19 and the impact it is having on our daily lives. Everything is being shut down, schools are being canceled, sporting events are being canceled left and right. It’s an extremely unsettling time right now – especially not knowing what will come next. What we do know, though, is that the impact felt by caregivers all over St. Augustine and the rest of the country will be far and wide. We are left with some many feelings and questions, while at the same time trying to figure out schedules, work, and preparing for our older kids to be out of school for an unknown amount of time.
Although St. Augustine Moms cannot provide you with many of the answers we can do our best to provide you with the resources, latest up-to-date information and tips + tricks to keep you and the kiddos busy during this time. We’ve compiled some of our favorite resources from our own archives, as well as City Mom Collective sister sites around the country, to create a COVID-19 survival guide that will *hopefully* help reduce some of the stress the coming weeks may bring.
*Please note that this will be a fluid resource as more and more information rolls in. While we will make every effort to check links and details, please let us know if we miss something or details are missing/incorrect. Please check back for the most up-to-date information by adding it to your homescreen on your phone (Android). One click and you’ll have the same information we do!
