Many of you have reached out to ask what you can do to help your public health department and essential health care professionals. Here are four ways that you can support those who are working tirelessly on the front lines:

Donate supplies such as clinical masks and cloth face coverings so we can distribute them to local long-term care facilities and shelters. Donations like these will show your support and make a difference for those in need.

Provide cards or letters of appreciation to let these front-line workers know how much you appreciate their efforts to eliminate this virus. Homemade signs and cards by our children are particularly appreciated.
