AARP Alabama Town Hall on the Coronavirus



Full Event


AARP Alabama held this Access Live event to connect with members and discuss the coronavirus pandemic. Joining the call was a panel of experts from the Alabama Department of Public Health, Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs, Alabama Hospital Association, and United Ways Alabama. Guest speakers began the call by discussing how residents can protect themselves from the virus, avoid spreading it to others, and the resources that are available to help during this time. Participants had questions about topics such as what to do if they are experiencing potential symptoms of the virus, how to find a bipartisan way to reopen the economy when the time comes safely, possible Medicaid expansion, the availability and cost of testing, and where residents can obtain masks. Hosts encouraged those in need to reach out for help.
