We're here for each other.
Area Resources and Assistance.
Check often for updates.
A new task force has been formed to help assess safe practices for our Fellowship gatherings. Members are Susan Scrimshaw, Suellen Skinner, Joe Kelaghan, Rev. Linda Barnes and Mary Crowell. Please reach out to them if you have any concerns.
Because of the recent restrictions on visiting, etc., the nursing home residents are feeling extra lonely and cards of well wishing, even from people they don’t know, would be very appreciated. If you don’t have cards, a quick note and a picture will do.
Please consider, during your stay-at-home time, sending a letter to a local long-term living facility. Many from the Plymouth area go to Golden View in Meredith. The address is: Long-term Resident (you don’t need a specific name), Golden View, 19 NH Route 104, Meredith, NH 03253.

Protecting Yourself and Your Family
This virus is spread through sustained contact with others. Through out the world this is transmitted through family and friends. Follow these guidelines. These tips are from Dr. David Price of Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City. https://vimeo.com/399733860
Wash your hands. After shopping, after you get your mail... all the time! Use wipes before touching shopping carts or anything outside your home.
Don't touch your face. Wear a mask when you're out to prevent your face from being touched.
Stay away from people. Shrink your social circle. Contact should be only family that live with you.
If you show symptoms. isolate yourself from your family. If you're able, keep yourself in a separate room. Wear a mask and wash hands before interacting with other members in your household.
