COVID-19 / Coronavirus
Governor Gavin Newsom’s “Stay Home. Save Lives. Check In.” campaign urges Californians to help combat social isolation and food insecurity among Californians who are over the age of 65 – a community that is uniquely vulnerable to COVID-19. The Governor also announced the creation of a statewide HOTLINE — 833-544-2374 — in coordination with the non-profit local 2-1-1 systems, so that Californians have a one-stop shop to answer their questions and get assistance during this crisis. For example, the 2-1-1 system is able to help older Californians access grocery and medication delivery while staying at home.
President Trump announced the extension of the Coronavirus Guidelines for America (30 Days to Slow the Spread) for additional 30 days through April 30th. We strongly encourage you to share the revised CDC guidance (en Español) about this on social media, in newsletters, and other forms of communications with your constituents.
