Coronavirus - Good360

CORONAVIRUS

A Message to Our Community

In light of the global response to coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure our partners that Good360 remains committed to our mission of helping transform the lives of those in need through the distribution of needed goods.

Over the past few weeks, we have been humbled and inspired by the resiliency of our nonprofit members, and their determination to continue serving communities in the safest and healthiest ways possible.

Good360 has activated emergency work protocols in order to have minimal interruption to both our nonprofit and donor partners.

We will continue to work closely with our network of hundreds of corporate donors to source items to meet our nonprofit community’s rapidly changing needs. The Good360 catalog will continue to be updated with donations, and new items will be shared via e-mail.

CDC Prevention Tactics

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
