MARN Responds to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The health and wellbeing of our community is our highest priority. Due to concerns and uncertainty over the spread the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and in an abundance of caution, the MARN team will be working from home and postponing all scheduled public events until further notice.

During this period, MARN will remain available to respond to business related matters via Skype, conference calls, emails and texts. As circumstances continue to change, further precautions may be warranted. MARN will continue to monitor the situation and act accordingly.

According to the CDC, we can help protect ourselves from respiratory illnesses with everyday preventive actions:
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
If you are sick, and to keep from spreading respiratory illness to others, you should:
• Stay home.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.

Resource Links

Here are a few links that may be of help during this time. Please let us know if you find other important information that could benefit our community and we will consider posting it here as well.

Helpful health links:

·  Stay up-to-date with information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), including informational videos.

·  See a list of Milwaukee's free and income-based clinics, some of which can provide care with or without insurance. Contact the clinics directly with any questions.

·  Milwaukee Community Care & Mutual Aid Sign-up: you can sign up to give or receive help in Milwaukee, WI. Together, we can make sure everyone in our community has what they need. Spanish version:

Most of the CDC and government information has been in english and if you use the translate button sometimes it doesn’t translate everything or it’s very wrong. Because of that, 7 Latinx community organizers have created this Facebook page for Spanish speakers to get correct information. If you know Spanish speakers please share.

Another good resource to know about is the Milwaukee County Social Services Hotline. To connect by phone, dial 211 and folks can get help/info about an array of non-emergency things. For example, if you need to know information about food pantries in your zip codes, shelters, etc.
