As we all do our part to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we wanted to remind folks of the heightened risks posed to our older neighbors, who may be in a higher risk category according to CDC guidance
. We would ask that you consider the following:
- Be aware of senior neighbors who may be limiting their movements due to concerns about COVID-19. The CDC website recommends that older adults in communities where COVID-19 is spreading consider food deliveries through online methods, or through social networks. If you know of senior neighbors who may be avoiding public places to minimize risk of exposure to the virus, please consider reaching out to them via a call or email, to see if they are in need of assistance.
- Another alternative for those who would like to lend a helping hand to a neighbor (of any age) is the Fallsmead Neighborhood Assistance Program (contacts are Jesse Etelson 301-424-4355 or Jim Marinan 301-340-1325). The program consists of Fallsmead residents who have volunteered to assist those in need with a wide range of tasks. Both those who need assistance, or those who would like to volunteer to help, should contact Jesse and/or Jim to find out more.
Our concern for our neighbors, young and old, makes Fallsmead a special place to live. Please consider talking to your neighbors who may be in need of assistance, and providing help where you can.
