Be A Good Neighbor

As we continue to push through COVID-19 we encourage all to be good neighbors and help those around you. Below are some suggestions on how EVERYONE can help EVERYONE:

1) ๐ˆ๐ง๐ญ๐ซ๐จ๐๐ฎ๐œ๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฅ๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ง๐ž๐ข๐ ๐ก๐›๐จ๐ซ๐ฌ ๐š๐ง๐/๐จ๐ซ ๐ž๐ฑ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž ๐ฉ๐ก๐จ๐ง๐ž ๐ง๐ฎ๐ฆ๐›๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ, ๐ข๐Ÿ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ก๐š๐ฏ๐ž๐ง’๐ญ ๐ฒ๐ž๐ญ. A very easy way to make yourself available to neighbors is simply putting a handwritten note on your door. Include your name, phone number and/or email address, and, if applicable, your apartment number, plus a message that people can call/text you if they want to connect or need help.

2) ๐’๐ญ๐š๐ซ๐ญ ๐š ๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐ฆ๐ฎ๐ง๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ “๐ข๐ง ๐ง๐ž๐ž๐ ๐จ๐Ÿ” ๐ฅ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ. Set out a notepad in a common area and encourage people to write their name, phone number, apartment/house number and whatever specific item(s) they need to it. You could also do this digitally via Google Docs or a similar program.

3) ๐€๐ฌ๐ค ๐ฉ๐ž๐จ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž ๐ฐ๐ก๐จ ๐ฅ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž ๐š๐ฅ๐จ๐ง๐ž ๐ข๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฒ ๐ฐ๐จ๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ ๐ฅ๐ข๐ค๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ญ๐จ ๐œ๐ก๐ž๐œ๐ค ๐ข๐ง ๐จ๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฆ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ข๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฒ ๐ฐ๐š๐ง๐ญ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ข๐ซ ๐ž๐ฆ๐ž๐ซ๐ ๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ฒ ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ฌ’ ๐ข๐ง๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ๐ฆ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง. Some may say they have friends or family members checking on them, but it’s worth asking.

4) ๐–๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ฉ๐ž๐จ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž ๐ฆ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ ๐ง๐ž๐ž๐ ๐ฆ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ ๐ง๐จ๐ฐ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ฌ๐จ๐ฆ๐ž๐จ๐ง๐ž ๐ญ๐จ ๐ญ๐š๐ฅ๐ค ๐ญ๐จ, ๐ฌ๐จ ๐›๐ž ๐š๐ฏ๐š๐ข๐ฅ๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฅ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ๐ž๐ง ๐ฐ๐ก๐ž๐ง ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐œ๐š๐ง. While social distance is good and important in order to protect our individual and collective health, you should make a point to be a friend to your neighbors in the coming days and weeks. Whether through a call, text, FaceTime, Skype or an in-person meeting (at least six feet away), talking is important.

5) ๐๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ž ๐ ๐จ๐จ๐ ๐ก๐ฒ๐ ๐ข๐ž๐ง๐ž, ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฉ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐ข๐ง ๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐ฆ๐จ๐ง ๐š๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ฌ. You’re probably getting better about washing your hands with soap and water by now, and are especially diligent after trips outside. Start washing your hands before and after you go out as well as sanitizing hard surfaces.
