How to Help

Check on Your Neighbor

Social distancing doesn’t have to mean isolation. Call, text, or write a note to check on your neighbor, especially if they are an older adult. Your neighbor may have trouble getting groceries, medication, and other necessities. Ask how you can help and don’t hesitate to ask for help yourself.
