What You Can Do:
A Proper Response

As a citizen or as a non-profit serving our communities here are a few tips to help keep yourself and our communities safe:

Move Meetings and Trainings Online

One of the best ways to prevent the spread is to via “social distancing”. This means moving as much of your interactions to virtual space using tools like Zoom or UberConference (a free online conferencing tool).

 

Promote Personal Hygiene

Not only should you be diligent about not touching your face and washing your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds, but you should do what you can to promote this in your communities. Short training how-to videos are available online and should be shared with people of all ages.

 

Keep In Communication

Social distancing does not mean you should hole up in a cabin and wait for this to blow over, instead take this time to communicate (in new methods) with your family, friends and your greater community. Consider hosting daily video chats and be intentional about reaching out.
