What are the county's efforts to get the word out to our Hispanic community? I was delivering to a jobsite yesterday and noticed that the non-English speakers seemed to be unaware of social distancing and transmission protocols. We saw some posters at the commission meeting last week. How do we get these posters so they can be posted in appropriate areas?

Hello Everyone. This is Brandy, the Founder of Acceptance Recovery Center. We serve 70 men/women in long term residential care. We have found a way to continue serving our residents through telemental health in compliance with HIPPA. However, there is about 20 residents out of work. Given that we are a non-profit and a fee for service program, this really puts us in jeopardy. How can we go about to apply for relief funds through the prosperity package? Other sourcing of funding? We have cut our budget by 25% and we must continue to look at progressive ways to serve our community.

I am sure there are other non-profits that are in the same boat we are that are essential services to our community.

Same, Brandy. We have families understandably canceling in-home services.

What is being done to coordinate with and encourage neighboring counties whose population will use our critical care facilities to enact similar shelter in place rules?

The CVB has created a Facebook Group called Support Athens Own where we hope to share information and connect people to support the hospitality and tourism industry. Any fundraisers, grants, etc. for this industry can be shared and supported on this page.

I hear you mention Oconee County but what contact have you made with the other adjoining counties that border Clarke County?
Acceptance Recovery

Very great question. Our residents want to work and are required to do so. Where can we send them for support? Do not want to overwhelm the DOL if they are not equipped, etc.
