Spearheaded by NYS OASAS the #virtualhighfive campaign was a huge success throughout the Mid-Hudson region! The Virtual High Five campaign was started to reinforce that social distancing is key but that doesn’t mean we lost social connection. Messages written on hands to unite in the need to stay home, stop the spread but do not stop supporting one another. Many human service and community organizations participated in the challenge across the Mid-Hudson region. Remember, WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

Special thanks to the Orange County Youth Bureau who was instrumental with spreading the high fives far and wide!

**WELLNESS CHECK ON FRIENDS AND FAMILY**

Orange County Emergency Management would like to request the public's assistance in checking on friends, neighbors, colleagues and anyone who may have been sick in the past few weeks.

Many Orange County residents did adhere to recommendations and stayed home while sick, however, we want to ensure that those individuals are recovering and those who continue to be sick do seek medical assistance if necessary.

If you cannot safely check on friends and neighbors or are not able to make contact, please be sure to contact the local police department who can assist with conducting wellness checks as needed.

**WHO CAN HELP**

OCEM has received several calls and messages from OC residents asking what they can do (other than social distancing and staying home) to help in the COVID19 response.

With the current suggestions from the CDC for the public to wear face masks, OCEM would like to ask for the community assistance to consider helping make and donate homemade face masks for the other less recognized front line workers – those at grocery stores and other public work force entities.

Commissioner of Public Health, Dr. Irina Gelman states, “the essential workers who continue working in support roles for the benefit of our community deserve to be protected”

OCEM would like to ask those with sewing capability and materials to please consider reaching out to your local grocery store and other community service organizations to see how you may be able to help those that continue to serve us every day.
