Covid-19 Resources

by

Local Covid-19 Information

Please be aware that our meetings are being held via Zoom until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Below is information we hope will help you during these challenging times. If you need additional help or information, please call 211 for assistance or referrals. And as always, contact your elected officials for assistance.

For the most accurate information about Covid-19 symptoms, treatments, vaccines, and travel restrictions, we recommend visiting the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website. It is important to only trust health information from online sources that you know are trustworthy and reliable, such as the CDC website.  

For current detailed data with charts and graphs showing the number of Covid-19 deaths and daily cases, visit the website provided by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University. 

Evictions

There is a state moratorium on housing evictions that the governor has extended until June 30, 2021. However, this does not necessarily apply to all tenants and all properties, so it is important to make sure that you understand how this law applies to your situation.

Legal Help

If you need legal help and cannot afford an attorney, visit the California Rural Legal Assistance website or call them at: 1-800-337-0690

Social Services

Calaveras County Health and Human Services Dept. is the best place to begin when you need urgent help with food, housing, or medical care. Their website is here and their address, email, and phone numbers are below.

Updated 2/11/2021:

For information on the upcoming, third stimulus payment, CNet has updated information here.

The CDC has Covid-19 information related to the elderly and aging on their website here.

You can view or download a helpful PDF resource guide for seniors in Calaveras County here: Seniors’ PDF

The Veterans Administration offers a comprehensive FAQ (frequently asked questions) website page to help veterans with Covid-19 information related specifically to them.

The DAV (Disabled American Veterans) website also has a helpful webpage about Covid-19 resources for veterans.

Please check the housing and food tab for help with those issues or call 211 for other local resources as needed.

Unemployment may be one of the most frustrating issues that people are dealing with during the Covid-19 pandemic. If you have become unemployed due to Covid-19, you’ve no doubt called EDD and visited their website. But you may not be able to reach them or to get your questions answered. This ABC news report by KGO offers several useful tips. In addition, if you need legal help and cannot afford an attorney, visit the California Rural Legal Assistance website or call them at: 1-800-337-0690

But the best suggestion we can offer to those struggling with EDD problems is to contact your elected state officials. Their job is to represent you, and they have staff you can contact for help. That said, some elected officials are more helpful than others, so keep trying.

Coming soon!
