This article originally appeared on the Across America Patch

Dear neighbor,

In addition to following our local news coverage on the coronavirus outbreak, you can use Patch as a place to connect with your neighbors during this challenging time. Here are some ways you can use your local Neighbor Posts section, which you can find in the navigation bar at the top of the page:

✓ Follow local discussions

✓ Volunteer to help neighbors in need

✓ Ask & answer questions about the situation in your community

✓ Give tips on store supplies, wait times, etc.

✓ Share the ways you’re keeping strong while staying safe

✓ Post updates about your local business or nonprofit (hours, delivery options, etc.)

Start posting here.


You can also use Patch to post any virtual events you may be hosting while you practice social distancing, or post a classified in our local marketplace.

Are you a local official? Make sure to apply for a local official badge, so the community knows to trust your posts and replies.

We’ll continue working to keep you informed and connected in the meantime.
