In order to help ensure individuals who are more at risk of developing serious complications from Covid-19 can still meet their basic needs, Berkeley Mutual Aid is offering a matching service between individuals who are higher-risk and those who are lower-risk. For the purposes of this form, individuals who are considered higher risk include those who are 65 years of age or older and/or have underlying health conditions and/or are immunocompromised, as outlined by the CDC.
Once a match is made you and your COVID-19 Match can coordinate the delivery of essential supplies, like food, toiletries, and prescriptions. You and your match can also help one another feel less isolated by checking-in on the phone or by other electronic means. Please follow all directions provided by the CDC to mitigate community spread.
Note: Only individuals who are at lower risk of developing serious complications from COVID-19, as outlined by the CDC, can complete volunteer tasks that requires leaving social isolation.
