COVID-19 and the Reeve Foundation

Posted by Reeve Staff in Daily Dose on March 13, 2020 # COVID-19, Health

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation understands that many members of our community, particularly caregivers, may have questions and concerns related to the spread of the coronavirus, known as COVID-19. We are closely monitoring national government health agency guidance and consulting with our local and state health agencies on dealing with the coronavirus. We are committed to following the recommendations of local, state, and federal authorities. The health and safety of the community we serve are of the utmost priority. Please watch your email and our social media channels for upcoming event postponements and cancellations.

For the most up-to-date information about the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Reeve Foundation recommends that you reference the websites for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and state and local health authorities.

For specific information about symptoms you may be experiencing or questions about personal exposure as someone living with paralysis or as a caregiver, please contact your physician directly. Our team of Information Specialists is available to answer calls, emails, and continue to be a resource for the paralysis community.

We plan to increase our offerings of educational webinars, tips for caregivers, and managing anxiety over the next few weeks.
