Things that occur to me (without reference to specific Bible verses):

Serve as an example or witness to others through our own behavior of our knowledge and faith that God is in control, even at times such as this.

Examine our own individual readiness for Christ's return, and amend our lives accordingly, especially since Jesus specifically mentioned pestilences such as this as a sign of the close of the age.

Exercise increased devotion to prayer for God's protection of ourselves and others, as well as for resolving the current situation to His glory, whatever its temporal outcome.

Do whatever is within our power to protect or shield others from the pandemic or its effects.

Focus on meeting the needs of individuals impacted by the situation, while not further compromising either their health or safety, or the health and safety of others.

We must find our hope, rest, help, safety and satisfaction in God. It is in times of trouble that we draw close to God, more than in good times. Nothing can touch us without God's permission and we know that God works all things for the good to those who believe in Him. Therefore, we have no reason to worry. God is our strength, our master and guide. Seek Him in prayer, take the steps you know to keep yourself safe during this season, and leave the rest to God.
