A few coronavirus tips from me—instead of hoarding bleach wipes, organize a meeting with your neighbors. 

Everything I learned about disaster preparedness I learned from interviewing @DrLucyJones—her book on how societies recover from catastrophic events is a must-read. 

If you're in LA, the @ReadyLA program will send emergency managers like @k8hutton to your block to help you make a plan. I cannot recommend it enough—it's completely changed the way I think about our neighborhood. 

Also please do read the other coronavirus pieces I quote in my story for examples of preparing in a way that's civic-minded, compassionate, and rational.
