As the COVID-19 Coronavirus disease continues to affect us, it’s important to remind ourselves what we can do for prevention and in case we get sick. To help you with this, we assembled the WHO (World Health Organization) advice for the public about COVID-19 into a 3-part SMS Blast, ready to copy and paste. You can send this message using the engageSPARK platform or in any other SMS platform of your choice; or even send it with your phone!

If you’re looking for a more in-depth series of messages that go out over regular intervals and remind people of the WHO-recommended behavior, check out the SMS template message series we created.

We checked the message to ensure that it does not contain expensive Unicode characters. This text message is good to go.
