The effects of social isolation on our physical and mental health is well documented; we need each other in this ever-changing landscape of training and competition. The USOPC Sport Psychology Professional team encourages you focus on maintaining the social connections that help us thrive and stay healthy, while minimizing physical contact following recommended guidelines.
