Community COVID-19 Update and Resources

Neighbors,

We hope this finds you well, healthy, and adjusting to the changes in our daily lives as a result of COVID-19 and necessary public health precautions.

The guidance we are receiving from all sources informs us that the most effective way to curb the spread of COVID-19 is for community members to practice social distancing and remain at home as much as possible. 

As such, Capitol View Neighborhood Association will hold the March 21st neighborhood meeting virtually. You will be able to access the meeting via this link https://zoom.us/j/4928816715 . The Meeting ID is 492 881 6715. See the bottom of this message for the full meeting invitation and dial in options.

We will open the meeting at 10:15 for some get to know your neighbor time so come early if you can!

This is our first attempt with this meeting format, so please bear with us. If you have technical issues please email Justin Ruckman at [email protected] with “Join Meeting” in the subject line and he’ll do his best to help you get it resolved.

We only have 100 seats available, so if possible and safe, please share your access with your housemate(s).

We chose to move forward with a meeting because as a community, it is vital that we stay connected to resources and each other during this difficult time. As a neighborhood association, everything we do is in support of building and maintaining a strong and inclusive community, with engaged residents that contribute to a safe and sustainable future. 

With the spread of coronavirus in the United States, our senior neighbors are some of the most vulnerable. We want to help them stay in their homes and avoid public places by kicking off a program to pair them with fellow neighbors in Capitol View.

We’re asking volunteers to run errands such as picking up groceries or medications.

We also have volunteers willing to help people negotiate things like filing for unemployment online, or getting deferrals on different types of payments.

We know that self-isolation is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus, but it can also get lonely. We’re asking volunteers to give their neighbor a call every couple of days to check in on them and see if they need anything.

We’ll be pairing up neighbors who live near each other. If you are interested in volunteering, or know a senior in need, please contact Analiese O’Toole at (610) 504-1384. 

Know that the Capitol View Neighborhood Association remains committed to being a resource to our neighbors. Please visit our Coronavirus Resources page on this website for a list of resources. If you have news/updates, need assistance for a neighbor, or if we can support you in other ways, please contact [email protected].

In the meantime, take the needed steps to stay safe and well, listen to your doctor, check in on your family and friends, fill out your Census information, speak up against practices that are negatively impacting residents and neighbors, share resources, and get some fresh air when you can. 

Yours in Community,
