Request Assistance for Yourself or Someone in Need
We want to hear from you if you or anyone you know is in need of assistance. Please contact the Albany CARES program at 1(510) 524-9122. We will do our best to locate resources and connect people with services as much as possible.
Comply with Social Distancing Recommendations and Mandates
To lessen the impact of COVID-19 on our community, we must reduce the times and places when people come together. By acting now, we can reduce how fast and how far the virus spreads.
Support Local Businesses
While the shelter-in place order remains in place and social distancing is critical at this time, please also take some time to support our local business community however possible. Buy local from our grocery stores that remain open, order takeout from your favorite Albany restaurants and make sure to tip, purchase gift cards online, keep your current memberships, write a positive online review, share and repost social media posts, encourage local businesses to provide services remotely and provide technical assistance if you’re able, and ask them directly how you can support them.
Support Your Community Remotely
To keep up with things, consider checking in with neighbors, friends, and family via phone, video chat, or social media.
