Coronavirus update for the Crown Heights Community: Information about the medical and mental health hotlines over Erev Yom Tov and Yom Tov.
COVID hotline: 212-901-2000
-We will be returning calls throughout the day today, Erev Yom Tov
-The COVID hotline will be open over Yom Tov for critical matters. Don’t hesitate to call if you are unsure whether your situation warrants it. Of course, in the event of a medical emergency, please call Hatzalah.
-On Friday, after Yom Tov, the hotline will be open 10am-3pm. If you call outside of that time (or within that time but the line is busy), please leave a message and someone will get back to you.
Errands helpline: firstname.lastname@example.org (or call the hotline 212-901-2000).
-Tuesday, Erev Yom Tov – If there is an urgent errand, such as for medications, please call the hotline and leave a message.
-Friday after Yom Tov: The errand helpine will be open 10am-3pm.
Mental health support:
-The Mental Health support hotline will be joining forces with the Amudim hotline for the duration of Yom Tov. Please direct your calls to them in case of crisis over Yom Tov (888-726-8346).
-The hotline will resume operations after Yom tov.
We are continuing to see sporadic cases throughout the community, and it is our fervent hope that through our continued efforts and vigilance we can keep the infection under control, and ultimately eliminate new cases entirely. If anyone is newly ill, again, please document that here.
Please continue to practice social distancing precautions as discussed in previous updates. Of significant concern are those most vulnerable to the infection, such as above age 65, in particular those that have not been sick yet. Continuing to isolate remains critically important for those in this group.
May all those that are well remain well, and those that are ill have a complete and speedy Refuah Shleimah! Wishing everyone a good Yom Tov.
-The Gedaliah Society, in conjunction with Dr. Rosen
