Jewish DC’s Coronavirus Coping Guide

We are absolutely devastated by the coronavirus pandemic that is afflicting our world, and have been feeling all the feelings that this uncertain and frightening time is generating. Unfortunately, none of us at GatherDC are medical professionals, therapists, politicians, or billionaires – nor do we have any additional tips for physical safety that the CDC hasn’t already provided. But, we are listeners, connectors, and community builders and we have a deep love for each and every human across DMV’s Jewish community. We know how challenging it is to be living in quarantine, practicing social distancing, feeling anxiety in jobs where you have to be out and about, dealing with health risks and illness, or facing any of the other very real fears this crisis is creating.

To help ease our loneliness and anxiety, and keep us as mentally and physically healthy as we can be during this time – we’ve put together some resources to help us get through this together

P.S. If you have any additions, concerns, or questions, please email us at info@gatherdc.org. We are here for you in whatever way we can be.

P.P.S. Watch this 1 minute video if you need to smile – and be reminded why social distancing is so important right now.
