COVID-19 Updates

Resources for Philadelphians seeking assistance and ways to help, donate, and volunteer.


On March 27, Governor Wolf signed Senate Bill 422, which reschedules Pennsylvania’s primary election from April 28 to June 2 due to the COVID-19 emergency. Voters have the option to vote by mail-in ballot rather than going to their polling place on election day. Mail-in ballot applications will be accepted through Tuesday, May 26, 2020. If a voter has already applied for an absentee or mail-in ballot, they do NOT need to reapply.

Ways to help the community

Connect for Covid-19 is running a Philadelphia initiative to collect and donate video-enabled devices to healthcare sites. During the pandemic, many patients and elderly individuals are isolated and unable to see their families, regardless of whether or not they have COVID-19. They want to make sure that every patient and nursing home resident in Philadelphia is able to see their loved ones to improve their well-being and/or possibly say good-bye for the last time.  


 If you have an old phone, tablet, or even a charger or case lying around, please consider donating! Just email with subject “DONATION” to receive instructions. They have a secure drop-off location as well as contactless pickup.Please feel free to spread the word about this project, and be well!Learn more at
