April 2: Hospital Readiness

  • The CDC is saying people should wear masks when out of the house now. Find a pattern and get some tips to make your own or help make them for people who are providing essential services by emailing the network of folks working on this: CraftResponders@gmail.com.
  • Trying to figure out if you should get tested for COVID, or if you should go to the hospital because your symptoms are getting worse? Call the Department of Health Hotline: 1-855-600-3453
  • Albuquerque Mutual Aid put out the call today asking for food or monetary donations, saying their backstock was almost depleted. 

April 3: What's Changing In What You Care About? 

  • The state has guaranteed free testing for coronavirus and free treatment. So if you don’t have health insurance, don’t let that stop you from seeking care. It also covers illnesses related to COVID, like flu or pneumonia.
  • If you get billed for it, and you think it’s unfair, call the OSI Managed Health Care Bureau at 1-855-427-5674
