Opinion: As the coronavirus spreads in Orange County, we have a choice

Bernadette Boden-Albala, UCI director and founding dean of the program in public health and Eric Spangenberg, UCI dean of the Paul Merage School of Business write, “Collective action – embraced by every individual in our community – can immediately reduce the rate of transmission of coronavirus and flatten the curve in Orange County and California. It will truly serve everyone’s self-interest to choose compassion towards our neighbors over the convenience of following a pre-pandemic routine during a health pandemic.”
