Should we be wearing masks? Here's some King County info: Staying apart from other people is our best protection against COVID-19, but non-medical masks can be a supplement. "Medical masks are needed for healthcare workers who are in close contact with someone who has COVID-19... For the general public, homemade fabric masks, especially if well-made and fit, may provide some benefit."

Going outside? These are some good COVID-19 recommendations from Snohomish County on how to recreate responsibly (yes, our parks are closed... but I know it doesn't stop people from walking in them, so here are some tips to do it smarter and safer): 1) Only with people in your immediate household. 2) Stay close to home – If you take a car, the park is too far. 3) Follow social distancing. 4) No events or gatherings of any size. 5) Do not park in front of park gates or access roads. 6) Do not play on any play equipment. 7) Pack it in, pack it out.

WIC (women infants and children) is open and delivering benefits remotely. For families whose situation may have changed due to COVID-19, they may qualify for WIC. To find a WIC clinic call 1-800-322-2588 or text “WIC” to 96859. Families who do not use WIC could help our WIC families by leaving
WIC products on the shelf and choosing something else if possible. The
products marked with a WIC shelf tag are the only things WIC families
are able to buy with their WIC benefit.

Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefit Payments will continue to be paid on time during the COVID-19 pandemic.The Social Security agency also reminds everyone to be aware of scammers who try to take advantage of the pandemic. They may try to trick people into providing personal information or payment via retail gift cards, wire transfers, internet currency, or by mailing cash, to maintain Social Security benefit payments or receive economic impact payments from the Department of the Treasury. The Social Security Administration will pay monthly benefits on time and these payments will not be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. More info here.
Social security recipients will also automatically receive the $1200 COVID payments without having to file a tax return.

3. What expectations of “normal” am I letting go of today?
4. How am I getting outside today?
5. How am I moving my body today?
6. What beauty am I creating, cultivating, or inviting in today?
