In case you missed some of the actions state and local leaders have taken to cope with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and provide support for their staff, educators, learners and communities- we have pulled a few to share with you!
Many school districts have used their closed buildings and transportation services to distribute meals and school materials to their students. Here is an example from Colorado and Tennessee districts partnering with local businesses to distribute meals!

We do what we can, when we can! With the support of our teaching team & administrator, CAL’s Health Science Dept. donated all our PPE directly to alumni (who is a ER nurse with Legacy) and her colleagues as we face a shortage of PPE to keep them safe! #ppeisnotoptional pic.twitter.com/ERJyu4MtJT
