Let’s Make 2024 A Healthy New Year       
Every new year starts during a tough time for health. Short daylight hours cause emotional struggles for some. Cold weather limits people’s physical activities. And spikes in respiratory viruses lead to waves of illness and increased hospitalizations. Fortunately, there are productive things we can do to keep ourselves healthier and feeling better.

For those who struggle with less daylight, do your best to get outdoors when the sun is shining or at least sit near a window when possible. If that’s not sufficient, there are full-spectrum lights you can purchase. Make sure the lights are strong to be effective. This hyperlink highlights some models identified by Good Housekeeping as meeting standards to help those with the winter blues. For those who struggle to the point where it makes life difficult, please contact your primary care provider or call Calvert County Health Department at 410 535-3079 x6 for an appointment with a licensed therapist. > Read more

Covid-19 At Home Test Kits are available at local pharmacies and many locations throughout the community, including libraries and community centers. If you, or a member of your household are experiencing symptoms of an illness, please see your provider.
