What You Can Do


Anne Arundel County has set up a page with information about how you can support the fight against the virus at https://www.aacounty.org/coronavirus/donate. At this webpage, you can learn what supplies are needed (including goods, money, and blood) and how to get them to those in need. 

Follow these recommended preventative actions from the CDC to help prevent the spread of the virus.


  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay home if you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash.
