Connecting with Others

While we continue to advise social distancing, it is important to maintain connectedness with our friends and family during this stressful time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has resources specific to our current situation.

How to find Child Care?

This is the time to activate your social network. Reach out to your employer to see what benefits they have. One option is to coordinate with coworkers to stagger time off and trade child care. In-home daycares may be willing to assist, or also try NextDoor to see what co-ops are available in the community. With older kids out of school, there may be some who are available for babysitting. For advice on if it’s ok for your children to be home alone, this article has a series of questions to ask yourself.

The Colorado Emergency Child Care Collaborative is an emergency program meant to target children of health care providers, public safety workers and staff supporting at-risk populations.

Mental Health Resources

The current COVID-19 public health crisis and its many stressors can increase feelings of isolation, despair, anxiety and suicidal ideation – even among those who haven’t experienced these feelings in the past. These are common reactions in times of uncertainty, and you’re not alone. Social connections are critical to helping with these feelings, reducing risk and saving lives. However, in an era of social distancing, it may seem challenging to find this type of support. Here’s a list of resources to help you navigate this uncharted territory. 

If you are experiencing an emergency, call 9-1-1.

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis or just need to talk to someone, call 844.493.8255 or Text TALK to 38255 or visit Colorado Crisis Services

Resources for Broomfield Businesses:

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has provided a list of federal programs for assisting small businesses (firms with less than 500 employees). If you’re a small business in need of assistance, please consult the SBA’s Guidance for Businesses and Employers to Plan and Respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The SBA is making available targeted, low-interest disaster recovery loans to small businesses that have been severely impacted by the situation. The State of Colorado is currently working with the SBA to secure access for Colorado businesses and we will share details as soon as they are made available. 

Additional programs and support for businesses and their employees are being considered in Congress, and other levels of government. As these additional programs are formed, we will provide more details.
