Congressman Adam Kinzinger took to Facebook on Monday to remind the public to be mindful during the nation's fight against COVID-19. Kinzinger said the majority of Americans infected with COVID-19 will not develop critical symptoms, but could carry the disease to more vulnerable community members. 

Kinzinger also said the goal of the numerous closures and restrictions are an effort to "flatten the curve," which means slowing down the rate of COVID-19 infections to avoid a spike in cases that would overwhelm the health care industry. 

Kinzinger said he will be providing more updates on his Facebook page.
