COVID-19 Resources

We encourage n4a members and staff to follow guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as from local, regional and national health officials. n4a will rely on this guidance as we update our members on developments related to the new coronavirus. Questions? Please send them to info@n4a.org.
 
The following resources can provide Area Agencies on Aging and Title VI aging programs with information that can help them plan and prepare to meet the needs of older adults in their communities.

Government Resources

n4a Publications 
Staying Safe at Home During the Coronavirus Crisis
​Developed with AAAs and their providers in mind, the Eldercare Locator’s consumer fact sheet on COVID-19 gives older adults and caregivers vital information on COVID-19, such as why older adults and people with chronic conditions are at higher risk, ways to prevent the spread of the disease, symptoms of COVID-19, what to do if you get sick and how to protect against COVID-19 scams that have cropped up all around the country. The flyer is available in English and Spanish. 

New!  Staying Connected at Home During COVID-19
A new flyer from the Eldercare Locator and engAGED: The National Resource Center for Engaging Older Adults helps AAAs and others in the Aging Network ensure that older adults have the information, resources and tips they need to stay connected to the community during the COVID-19 national health crisis, thereby avoiding the negative health effects of social isolation and loneliness.
