Coronavirus: What you can do

We, the Board and Steering Committee of CvilleVillage, really wish we were already a functional Village right now. In our community and worldwide, we’re coping with a health challenge like nothing we’ve seen before. Times are tough and not looking like getting better any time soon. So what can each of us do to help?

Keep yourself safe. Stay home unless you have to go out for food, medicines, or other essentials. Wash your hands, for at least 20 seconds, several times a day, especially after you’ve touched something from outside your house. Keep a distance of at least 6 feet from other people both inside and outside. If you feel unwell, call your primary care provider for instructions if you can, before going to the office or the ER.

Do you need help? Help is available in Cville and surrounding counties. Here are some resources:

Support Cville is a site where you can request help https://www.supportcville.com/en/get-support or offer help https://www.supportcville.com/en/provide-support.

Charlottesville Area Community Foundation https://www.cacfonline.org/ is another source for urgent assistance. The Community Resource hotline phone is 434-234-4490.
