COVID-19 Response and Resources

Hand Up Health Services continues to conduct outreach as Needle Exchange is an essential service. In order to ensure adequate volunteers at each outreach site the Thursday nights in Dover are temporarily canceled.

If you have life-threatening symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, please call 911.

If you are experiencing common symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever or cough, please call your primary care provider for guidance. Call 2-1-1 if you do not have a primary care provider
