What can you do for your community? One of the few upsides to these situations is watching how Hoosiers come together in trying times. Other than staying safe, calm, and home as much as you can, what can you do to help? Small gestures can make a big difference. You can:

  • Reach out to your elderly neighbors who may be worried about grocery or medication runs
  • Remind your friends and colleagues to practice social distancing
  • Consider tipping more than usual if you get takeout or delivery
  • Look for positive messaging on social media, and share it with others (There's no such thing as too many baby animal videos.)
  • Order food and have it delivered to workers who keep us going - hospital, healthcare, police, firefighters, USPS/UPS/FedEx, etc...
  • Order gift cards from your favorite local business
  • If you must get out, be patient with longer wait times
  • Take a walk (while keeping your distance from others) and pick up some trash around your neighborhood
  • If you don't feel well, stay at home
