Neighbors Who Care COVID-19 Response
Neighbors Who Care continues to closely monitor coronavirus developments and has implemented measures set by the CDC and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health to ensure the safety of our volunteers, clients and staff. Our commitment to the health, safety and well-being of every member of our community is our top priority. Fully aware that Neighbors Who Care is a lifeline for vulnerable seniors in Sun Lakes and south Chandler, essential volunteer services are available for our neighbors in need during this time of uncertainty.
More than half of Arizonans are now vaccinated. With the DELTA variant now comprising 93 percent of cases in the state, and understanding its higher infectious nature, we continue to ask those in our vaccinated members of our community–clients, volunteers, staff, and partners–to continue wear a mask in public, to wash your hands frequently, and to practice rigorous social distancing whenever possible to minimize viral spread. Masks may be removed if both volunteer and client are vaccinated and both agree.
HOW TO HELP:
COVID-19’s biggest impact on Neighbors Who Care continues to be on our volunteer roster. Concerned for their own health, 50% of our regular volunteers are unable to serve at this critical time. If you or a friend or neighbor are willing to give a homebound senior neighbor a ride, or to pick up groceries or deliver dinner, our neighbors need help!
