BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR
Look out for your neighbors, especially those who might be more at risk. Here are some friendly ways you might be able to engage.
- Check in by text with an at-risk neighbor.
- Video chat with a neighbor or just call them.
- Pick up groceries or medications for those who should not leave their homes
- Prepare a meal and drop it off.
- Ask if you can help.
You can also help by being courteous. This isn't a time to panic. Don't buy more than you need of items in short supply.
PLEASE DON'T FLUSH IT
With the unprecedented toilet paper shortage facing so many of us, people will inevitably need to rely on baby wipes, "flushable" wipes, paper towels, tissue or other paper items for personal cleaning. These items do not break down in the sewer system and can cause costly backups into your home or street and can significantly impact our wastewater treatment plants. Please do not flush anything down your toilet except waste and toilet paper. Learn more.
