The CDC states that older adults and individuals with serious chronic medical conditions are at higher risk for serious illness from Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), and recommends that community/faith leaders establish a "buddy" system "to ensure vulnerable and hard-to-reach community members stay connected to COVID-19-related news and services." With that in mind and in anticipation of the weeks ahead, Lawrenceville United, Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation, and Bloomfield Development Corporation encourage residents "to seek out a 'buddy' who will check on and help care for them if they get sick." For residents who don't know how to seek out a "buddy," LU and its partners will try to help match members of vulnerable populations to willing community volunteers who can provide check-in phone calls, share information, and POSSIBLY help with services such as shopping, picking up/delivering medicine, cooking a meal, etc. We will match people based on services needed/offered and location. If you're interested in being matched with a "buddy," either as a member of a high risk population, or as a community volunteer, please complete the form below. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe0Hev553cyD0avwMqE0B0LZwv36amVO09U8tC--qxCY_R7uQ/viewform?fbzx=4927627853373877407

I do not support this plan because:
This is an "action". Checkout the GUIDE for more info.
