This spring has certainly been challenging for everyone. Life as we knew it seemed to come to a halt and we had to establish new routines. Healthy Adams County went from planning programming and events to providing resources online and working with WellSpan to address certain issues such as sheltering homeless who tested positive for coronavirus.

Our Adams County Food Policy Council worked to address increased food access needs, our Physical Fitness Task Force offered self-serve walks with online maps, as well as virtual strength training classes, and our Behavioral Health Task Force and End of Life Committees provided resources on self-care and grieving. A big thank you to all of our volunteers that helped provide all of the resources to our community.

Kathy Gaskin is the executive director of Healthy Adams County.
