It's important that we work together to make sure that all of our neighbors stay connected and have what they need."<br></p> <p>Health officials continue to stress that by changing how we interact, we can help lessen the spread and flatten the curve of COVID-19. That includes 'distant socializing,' and showing care and interaction by calling, texting, or using other means to reach out that minimize close personal contact. </p> <p>By thoughtfully planning your interactions, you can provide food, necessities and a regular check-in to members of your neighborhood. Individuals who are especially vulnerable to catching the coronavirus, including the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, may need some kind of assistance in this difficult time. Social distancing guidelines discourage actually going inside and visiting with them, but you can still check on them from a responsible distance.</p> <p>Phoenix's NSD is promoting ways to responsibly practice 'distant socializing' that adhere to CDC recommendations of distance while making sure that people check in on their neighbors, share what they can in supplies and spread kindness without spreading the virus.<br></p> <p>“The #PHXGreaterTogether social media posts will showcases ideas on how to keep your communities close while social distancing with distant socializing," Self said. “We hope people follow along on the NSD Facebook page @PhxNeighborhood so we can make sure all the residents in Phoenix have what they need in the uncertain times."​<br></p><p>The city of Phoenix has developed a list of resources available to residents and businesses for help. <a href="https://phoenix.gov/Resources" target="_blank">Visit the Coronavirus Business & Resident Resources page</a>. Residents with questions about city services and programs affected by service changes can call (602) 262-3111 or e-mail <a href="mailto:contactus@phoenix.gov" target="_blank">contactus@phoenix.gov</a>.​​<br></p><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/nsdNewsneighborhood-servicesNSD
