You are Stuck Indoors – Now What?

While we are all sitting at home for the next few weeks, we have a lot on our minds about what we should be doing and how to spend our time wisely. Many of us are wondering how to best prepare for a full nation-wide shutdown and what that might look like for us. There are many things you can do now while there are resources to obtain items like dry and canned food, prescription drugs, over the counter medicines, and entertainment items like puzzles, books, board games and more! We are taking this time very seriously, but we must also remember not to panic and to try to enjoy our time while we have so much of it at home.

The resources you can use (depending on your location) to obtain those necessary items are InstaCart, Amazon, Shipt, and delivery from your local supermarket if they offer it. Most of these may be familiar to you, but Shipt is a newer delivery service that can deliver items from liquor stores, retail stores like CVS, Target, Petco and many more depending on the location. If you are unsure how to use any of the applications, you can visit their websites for more information about picking the items you need and checking the items out online for delivery.

When it comes to food, you may have seen the news about shortages at many stores, but do not worry! Many items get stocked weekly and these delivery applications take that into consideration. If you want to feel even more prepared and do not want to rely on an application, Chef 5 Minute Meals are an option and they are fully-cooked and prepared meals in a state-of-the-art facility meaning they’re safer to eat and easier to use than freeze-dried or frozen alternatives.



Entertainment-wise, your options are endless. Now is a great time to reorganize your home and focus on spring cleaning, read the books you have been unable to get to, exercise your brain with puzzles and brain teasers and so much more. We also recommend taking the time to call loved ones and catch up with them during this time as well. You can also try to go for a walk outside of your home if you practice caution and stay distant from neighbors.

While this is a difficult time, there are many things that can be done to help get through while things get under control. This is a time to be more introspective, selfless and cognizant of our place in society. It is a time to reflect on our many blessings and be thankful for our families and support systems.

Be Sure to Participate in the Online 2020 Census!

This year, the 2020 Census will be conducted online for those with access to the internet. To streamline the process and get an accurate count, the Census Bureau decided to create the online version for ease of use, managing resources efficiently and to receive information from hard-to-count households that are constantly moving, live in remote areas and more.

It is your civic duty to participate in the census. It tells local government that you count and where to direct approximately $675 billion around your state, county and community programs.



You may have already received the initial invitation to respond online and by phone. If your household has not responded by the end of April, a census taker will follow up in person from May 13-July 31. This is usually in the case for those who are out of the country or are not responding for personal reasons. While we have this time to focus attention on the census, it is our duty to fill it out and show our government that we count.

For more information on the 2020 Census, visit https://2020census.gov/.
