"During this time of COVID-19, those that have chronic illnesses or those that don't have chronic illnesses have to take care of their health, you have to think about how you're eating, how you're exercising, how you're drinking water, because we have to stay at our healthiest to be able to fight off a virus like this." - Dr. Rufus Tony Span
