COVID-19 RESOURCE PAGE

“THRIVING IN PLACE”

Dear Fellow MSSC Members & Friends

We have added this page to our website as an informational tool to provide virus updates, tips & other helpful resources.   As we get more information, we will update as necessary.  Take care all, be safe and PLEASE “Stay in Place”.  Only go out if absolutely necessary.

From Sara Ivie: “Each morning there are six questions you should pose to yourself. The answers you come up with will set the tone for the day ahead. 

>>Question #1 – What am I GRATEFUL for today?
>>Question #2 – Who am I CHECKING IN ON or CONNECTING WITH today?
>>Question #3 – What expectations of “normal” am I LETTING GO OF today?
>>Questions #4 and 5 – How am I GETTING OUTSIDE today? How am I MOVING MY BODY today?
>>Question #6 – What BEAUTY am I either creating, cultivating, or inviting in today?

To recap, Be grateful, Stay connected with important people in your life, “Let Go” of what used to be “normal”, get outside to exercise, and create beauty. 

The choice is yours. If you use these daily quarantine questions to impact your life, you can do more than just shelter in place. You can THRIVE IN PLACE!”

>From HSBC. The financial industry has seen an increase in cybercrime that preys on people’s fears of COVID-19. This comes as no surprise—threat actors commonly use current events, uncertainty and politics as email themes to get recipients to open malicious documents.

Coronavirus-themed phishing campaigns are increasing. Many of them are impersonating the World Health Organization (WHO) and other medical institutions, often pretending to provide useful tips that could prevent the virus. Cyber criminals are also trying to spread malware through a “Coronavirus Map” app. It does not intend to provide useful information, but instead is designed to capture user names, passwords, credit card numbers and other sensitive data.

· For COVID-19 emails sent to your email address, ensure the address and links, when hovered over, seem logical.
·  In your email, do not open email links or attachments related to COVID-19 unless you can validate the source and the links, when hovered over, seem logical. When in doubt, go directly to the WHO or other validated site directly without clicking on links or attachments embedded in email. Here are some scam subject samples currently circulating: “We need your support,” “URGENT:   Coronavirus,” “Would you consider donating?,” “Department of Health,” “Safety measures virus.” Verify a charity’s authenticity before making any donations.
·  If you receive requests for urgent payments, do not reveal your or anyone else’s personal or financial information in an email or on the phone and do not respond to requests for this    information. Check the source independently to confirm legitimacy and double-check with your line manager before proceeding with any urgent payments on behalf of customers.
·  Don’t respond to special or promotional offers for virus-linked products or services, and keep an eye out for the legitimacy of the sites you visit.
