Islesboro seeks citizen volunteers

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 8:15pm

The Islesboro Town Office circulated the following to its citizens: Our community is preparing for the onset of Covid-19; of course we hope there are no cases on Islesboro but in reality it is most likely there will be occurrences on the island. Our dedicated Health Center staff is small and would be stressed and possibly overwhelmed in the worst-case scenario.

We need to identify our community resources now so they may be called upon quickly in the case of an emergency. If needed, are you willing to volunteer to help? Do you have any medical or personal care experience? There will be need for other support personnel. Cleaning, driving vehicles (do you have a specialized license?), moving equipment or furniture, completing loan application forms, general computer tasks, etc.

If you possess any skill to help in this emergency and are willing to help your community, please send an email to manager@townofislesboro.com and provide the following information.

• Name

• Age

• Prior experience in medicine or personal care or other general skill

• Existing health problems

• Email and phone number

The Town and your neighbors give their thanks.
