Always defer to the guidance from your local Health Department or the CDC!

What you need to know up front:

  • I am not claiming to be an expert in coronaviruses, medicine, or preparedness. 

  • I have a PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from James Cook University, Australia.

  • I am an Assoc. Prof. of Biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where I teach and research infectious diseases and host immune responses of animals.

  • I get all of my information directly from experts in their fields and from the papers those experts are publishing daily.

  • I mostly write these articles for my family, friends, and students, who value my advice.

  • My email is if you would like to verify the authenticity of my posts.
