I AM OVER 60 OR HIGH RISK AND NEED A COVID-19 MATCH
I AM UNDER 60, LOW-RISK AND HEALTHY AND I WANT TO HELP MY NEIGHBOR!
Springfield is full of loving, compassionate and kind people. During this time of social distancing, many elder and high risk members of your community are going to need assistance getting critical supplies while refraining from being in large public spaces.
It is our hope to match those of you who are under 60, at low-risk for COVID-19 and healthy with elder members and neighbors in your community who are high-risk so that you can love them through this. You can help your neighbors by picking up groceries or prescriptions, delivering a homemade meal, a book from the library or simple be intentional about checking in every couple of days.
Once a match is made, you and your COVID-19 Match will take complete ownership of the process. When you meet your match what you do and how often you do it is completely up to you. Some Recommended Ideas for your Match:
- Call every couple of days to check in
- Make a homemade card
- Offer to pick up groceries or prescriptions
- Deliver a meal
- Clark County Combined Health District
- Ohio Department of Health
- Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s Office
- Center for Disease Control and Prevention
