Stay Home

Right now, staying home unless you absolutely need to go out is one of the best ways to help flatten the curve. When you do go out for work, groceries or exercise, stay 6 feet apart, wear a mask and wash your hands.

Celebrate Safely

Celebrate Safely

Public health officials cite private gatherings such as weddings, funerals and parties among the most common causes of new outbreaks. Avoid gatherings and find safer ways to celebrate such as virtual events or dropping off food and gifts.

Donate Blood

Donate Blood

With state- and nation-wide blood shortages, this is one thing you can do to directly save lives. If you are healthy with no COVID symptoms, it is still safe for you to donate blood. Find a blood drive near you.

Call Ahead for Health Care

Video Visit

Don’t neglect your health, but do call ahead to your doctor’s office or Urgent Care so they can prepare for your visit and safely accommodate you. Or call your primary care provider to schedule a video visit.

Thank Essential Workers

Thank You Heroes

It seems simple, but a colorful sign in your yard or window, or a note of encouragement and gratitude on social media can go a long way to remind essential workers of your support.

Make a Donation

Hands Holding Hearts

Consider supporting non-profit organizations that are providing COVID relief, such as securing needed medical supplies or assisting vulnerable populations.
