Resources and Services

Follow the Kent County Health Department 

The Kent County Health Department is providing regular updates on the status of COVID-19 locally. They also have great resources on how to prepare your family, school, or business for an outbreak of COVID-19.

Find Meal Sites and Other Resources

Visit the Heart of West Michigan United Way to find meal sites where you can pick up food if you are in need or call 2-1-1 or 1-800-887-1107 to get connected to resources. Now is the time to help others in need, Heart of West Michigan United Way is mobilizing community resources. If you are healthy and able, volunteer to help support our community.

Dental or Medical Services

General Services 

For general medical services, check with your doctor’s office to see if they provide remote appointments (telehealth). Many offices and area medical groups offer remote visits which allow you to visit with a medical professional from the comfort of your home. This reduces your risk of contracting COVID-19.

Sick with COVID-19?

If you think you are ill with COVID-19, call your doctor immediately for screening.
