 Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic Five Star Family Enhancement Plan “Zola Up on Us” 


AssociationBlackPsyhologistThe Association of Black Psychologists (ABPs) does not endorse or support any unsubstantiated beliefs and/or proposed strategies for responding to the COVID-19 Worldwide Pandemic. Amongst other statements, trainings, Pod caste, etc., the Association of Black Psychologists offers for your consideration a Five Star Family Enhancement Plan in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 


History teaches us that challenges to health and safety, fueled by a lack of information and outright ignorance and bigotry ignite people’s anxieties and fears of others (particularly us). COVID-19 is not exempt from this peculiar response. 

It’s is better to be prepared than sorry. 

First and foremost, we should not panic or be overly alarmed by this crisis. It too shall pass. 

Understand that COVID-19 is a “respiratory disease” that is mainly spread person-to- person. The life of this virus varies. It is detectable in the air for three hours. It can live on plastics up to 72 hours, on stainless steel up to 48 hours, on cardboard up to 24 hours, and on copper up to 4 hours. 

Currently, there is no available vaccine or curative treatment. The best preventative strategy is to avoid contact or exposure.
