Community Resources

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is a rapidly changing situation. We ask that you continue to follow the guidance of the CDC. There are steps that you can take to help yourself, your community, and Sandburg in preventing the spread of any flu-like virus like the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Practice social distancing. Avoid close contact with people who are sick or if you are sick stay home.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth if you have not washed your hands.
  • If you have a compromised immune system or have serious chronic medical conditions such as lung disease, heart disease, or diabetes please consider making accommodations for your health.

We understand this is a difficult time for all and will strive to do our best to support our community. Please see a list of available resources from throughout the district. Please note this list has been compiled based upon available information from local media and social media sources. We encourage you to contact these businesses and organizations before visiting their locations. This list will be updated as we receive information.
