HOW CAN I HELP?
The best way to help is to stay healthy
- Wash your hands often throughout the day. Use warm water and soap. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow. Viruses can spread by coughing or sneezing on other people or into your hands.
- Wear a mask when you leave your home.
Check in on your neighbors.
- Does anyone need help? Do neighbors need supplies?
- Groups where neighbors can help one another are forming around the state. Connect with your neighbors and see who needs help.
- COVID-19 PVD Area Mutual Aid and Community Assistance
- RI Responds seeking healthcare and community volunteers who can help when skilled individuals are most needed.
- RI Blood Center is seeking to double the blood reserves to prevent shortages.
- United Way is gathering names of interested volunteers for future needs in local communities. firstname.lastname@example.org
- PEMA Volunteers will be given training, support, and personal protective equipment and will serve in no-contact roles.
- Volunteer as a caregiver for the children of essential frontline workers.
