COVID-19 Resources: Call First

By: Sherii Sherban  (updated 11/21/20)

During this transitional time you may have many questions regarding what actions you should be taking, as well as how to access community COVID-19 resources. Be sure to call first, rather than to visit. And remember, just because an area is opening, it doesn’t mean that you have to participate until you are ready to do so.
