Sorry I just realized I wrote “civic” law instead of civil law. My bad!

Thank you so much Matthew! This is so awesome! Specially IRS info, stress relieve and government provisions.  We are also in need of info in Spanish regarding immediate jobs availability(on grocery stores, delivery etc), unemployment, meals and provisions available in each county, civic law (evictions) grace periods offered by utilities companies, etc…

What I’ve been experiencing on these COVID19 days is that (at least in my culture) people love, short and easy to read info and most of them rely an awful lot on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp as sources of information. Adding summarized text to our Facebook pages and/or other social media and linking resources such as the ones you shared will help tremendously.

Once again thanks for sharing,

Fantastic! Thanks for sharing that.

I've also had a hard time find resources in Spanish. Here's a list I've come up with so far (forgive some of the rough Spanish - it's been a couple of decades since high school Spanish for me):

Subject: [Libs-Or] Help to debunk myths related to COVID-19

Hello everyone,

Feel free to share the information below if you believe that will benefit your Hispanic patrons. Despite the fact people are somewhat informed how to prevent the virus, information in Spanish is still very scarce. Myths on how to "cure" and "how to be immune" to the virus are circulating on social media and word of mouth and endangering people's health. Just to give you an example, one of my patrons, was “teaching”  the clients of the convenience store where she works, to gargle hand sanitizer with water in order to "kill" the virus.

I also urge all professionals that serve the Hispanic Community to encourage products and services businesses and public institutions in your city to post information in Spanish about resources, closures and benefits extended to their residents during this difficult time so we can all benefit together.
