The City advises residents to practice “social distancing” to help stop the progression of a pandemic. However, just because we cannot physically gather does not mean we cannot connect.

On March 20, the City began its Safe at Home but Not Alone community outreach to connect with the community through programming on Coronado TV and via social media.

The City is broadcasting programs it typically offers at the Library, Spreckels Center and Community Center such as chair yoga, Library Story hour, Cultural Arts videos and Recreation dance programs for kids. In partnership with the Library, Recreation Department and Cultural Arts Commission, the City is creating new content daily. The City is engaging staff, local creatives and teachers to provide programming that otherwise would not be available to our citizens during this time.

Programming Schedule

The Coronado Public Library continues to offer services to the community including access to eBooks, audio-books, movies and magazines. Look for Facebook Live postings for children on the Coronado Library Facebook Page. Here's the schedule:

  • Monday at 10:30 a.m. Mindfulness Storytime
  • Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. Preschool Storytime
  • Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. –Spanish Storytime
  • Thursday at 10:30 a.m. – Baby Storytime

 Neighbor to Neighbor - Block by Block


Neighbor-to-Neighbor (N-2-N) is a program built on neighbors looking out for and helping one another. With multiple help-your-neighbor efforts springing up around Coronado immediately after the declaration of a national emergency, a group of citizens approached the City to propose a unified and coordinated effort to provide support to our citizens and neighbors. Through this partnership, local volunteers, your neighbors, with the support of the City of Coronado, are undertaking initiatives to get the word out to all our citizens; helping deliver food, medications, and other needs to people needing assistance; providing critical transportation for those in need; and coordinating donations to assist those suffering severe financial hardship during these times.

 

Programs are being organized by volunteers in the Coronado Cays, Coronado Shores, Coronado Village and Navy Housing. Coronado's N-2-N initiative will enable residents to be better informed and able to take advantage of local efforts and resources. Launching in the next few days, be on the look-out for a neighbor to deliver a letter with program details. This program is entirely voluntary. It establishes a practical, enduring system of communication between neighbors and a simple system to ensure neighbors are OK. It is a conduit for establishing effective communications and neighborly "check-ins" as well as serving as liaisons to make the city aware of needs or trends that may arise in their neighborhoods.

 

In the days to come, look for a neighbor to reach out to you about this program. Again, the program is entirely voluntary and run by volunteers but during these uncertain times it is important that we maintain our sense of community. If you do not receive information regarding this program and want to participate please contact the Neighbor-to-Neighbor (N-2-N) program coordinator at CoronadoN2N@gmail.com or contact the Coronado Call Center at (619) 522-6380.
