ZOOM TUTORIAL | How To Use Zoom STEP BY STEP For Beginners


It is worth repeating the guidance of the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) for protecting yourself and others: Wash your hands frequently with soap and/or alcohol-based sanitizers; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; cover your mouth or nose when you sneeze or cough; maintain distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Of course, if you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention.


Thanks to the internet, many of us can continue to research and write “Our Family Story”.


Stay Well!
