Seward Area & Business Resources for COVID-19

 

In order to do our part to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Seward Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center is closed to public access until further notice. We are working to provide information, resources, and programs to support Seward business during this difficult time. We will be communicating with our membership and updating this page on a regular basis regarding any information and services we are providing during this time.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE FROM PROVIDENCE HEALTH & SERVICES

Because many people are concerned about potential exposure to COVID-19, Providence wants to let you know how to access their services if you think you have been exposed and are experiencing fever and respiratory symptoms.

  • Please call ahead before coming in person to one of our physician clinics, urgent care centers or emergency departments. You can find phone numbers for our providers and locations at providence.org.
  • See a provider virtually using Express Care Virtual. With this service, you can visit with one of our providers via online video from the comfort of your home, seven days a week.
  • Use our new online coronavirus assessment tool. We developed this “chat” tool to help you assess your risk and to connect you with a provider virtually if you are at a higher risk for the virus.

    Fridays 4:00 pm ET / 2:00 pm MT / 1:00 pm PT / 12:00 pm Alaska.

HELPING IN THE COMMUNITY – FROM SEWARD ROTARY

Our Club has been volunteering out with at least one hands-on community project per month. Most of the projects we had in mind for March and April have now been canceled. However, with the coronavirus concern, there is more of a need for help with senior services in the community. We reached out to some of the different groups in town that serve seniors to see if anyone needed volunteers. Though we are in the midst of a virus outbreak, we have some opportunities to show our true service selves by helping others. 

After speaking with Seward Area Hospice, the Senior Citizens CenterProvidence Seward Mountain Haven, and the He Will Provide Food Bank, we have found some great ways for us to help out our community in the upcoming weeks.
If you hear of any other ways our Club can be of service please let us know!
