Welcome to the Roland Park Coronavirus Resource Page
This page is provided to inform residents of CDC guidelines and best practices, and to bring local resources to your attention. The intent is to help residents stay safe and reduce exposure to infection during this emergency. The Roland Park Civic League is not providing any medical advice. Please contact your health care provider if you need help, and take guidance from state and local authorities at all times.
- In an effort to ensure all residents have appropriate information to protect yourself and your families during this time, we’ve included CDC Prevention Steps below. This information and more can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html
- Know how it spreads: The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
- Take steps to protect yourself: Wash or sanitize your hands often. Avoid touching your face.
- Avoid close contact: Maintain 6 feet (2 meter) distance between you and other people.
- Take steps to protect others: Stay home if you’re sick. Cover cough and sneezes. If you have symptoms, wear a mask to protect others.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces daily.
The Roland Park Civic League is endorsing a Roland Park Self-Quarantine Support Network developed to help connect neighbors in need with volunteer neighbors who can help with things like grocery shopping and delivery, medication delivery, and dog walking. If you are interested in helping out your nearby neighbors, please sign up on the link above. Volunteers will need to (a) sign up, (b) sign a waiver, (c) be vetted, and (d) attend an orientation, in order to be eligible to be connected with a vulnerable neighbor.
Here is a handout currently being used by the Roland Park Self-Quarantine Support Network, this can be printed for neighbors who need help or who want to volunteer.

If you are in need of help due to self-quarantine or quarantine by a medical professional, we have developed a robust network of volunteer neighbors who are willing to help with groceries, medications, dog walking, checking in from time to time, or other things you may need help with. Please sign up on the link above or call one of your Plat Representatives or Ann-Barron Carneal at 202-997-4950.
