Please, Stay Home. Save Lives. Check In.

April 28, 2020

During California’s stay-at-home order, older Californians and other at-risk adults may need friends and neighbors to help them obtain basic needs like groceries and prescriptions, and much-needed social interaction.

You may have heard about Governor Newsom’s announcement of the “Stay Home. Save Lives. Check In.” campaign urging Californians to make telephone calls to check in on older Californians and other at-risk adults in their lives. The campaign’s goal is to make sure they are staying healthy, safe, and connected while staying at home to save lives. The campaign also provides key 1-800 resource numbers to call for COVID 19 information, help with food, prescriptions, connections, or protection from abuse or neglect.

Please join me in taking the pledge to Stay Home. Save Lives. Check in.

Visit to join me in taking the pledge to call, text, and (safely) knock on doors to make sure our neighbors, friends, and family are connected and have the support they need! Check out the Community Check in Checklist below to use during your check-ins.
