[community] How can we help?

pretty incredible how poor the planning has been - cutting nursing staff,
reducing public health funding, not investing in community health
organizations... Lack of resilience is the result if you spend all your
time worrying about taxpayers and ribbon-cutting at big hospitals.

anyway, I'm personally contending with the tension of wanting to 'get out
and help' but needing to say home for the sake of public health. Even if I
do go out, I am potentially a risk since my low vision means I many need
help or be unable to navigate effectively.  So I'm thinking about signing
up for online/phone roles, e.g. contact tracing work, to make a
contribution.

Hope you are all well - so glad we have our community listserv! All the best
