Dr. Jennifer Hartstein was featured in the article below as Yahoo Life Mental Health contributor and practicing psychologist.
As COVID-19 cases continue to surge across the U.S., some people are slowly starting to adjust to a new normal while others are finding that they’re spending more time at home. However, many questions still remain regarding how to act most responsibly and get through everyday decisions that used to be no-brainers. It’s all become stressful and complicated. What better way to find supportive, nonjudgmental advice than from medical front-liners who have seen the coronavirus up close and are themselves adapting to the changes.
Yahoo Life reached out to our four in-house medical experts — psychologist Jennifer Hartstein, emergency medical doctor Dr. Dara Kass, Brookings Institute nonresident fellow Dr. Kavita Patel, and emergency physician and Advancing Health Equity founder and CEO Dr. Uché Blackstock — and asked them to share details about the risks they are willing (and not willing) to take these days.
