AARP Delaware held this Access Live event to give an update on COVID-19 and provide information on how participants can protect themselves and get the help they need. Joining the call was Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester and Delaware Lieutenant Governor Bethany Hall-Long. Hosts began the call by emphasizing the importance of continuing to follow social distancing guidelines in order to avoid a second wave of the virus. Participants had questions about topics such as the limited supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), why this virus is considered so dangerous, how the racial disparity is being addressed, testing availability, long-term and current interventions, and assistance for those who are self-employed.
