In This Together
Apr. 06, 2020
I hope you are staying well, neighbors!
We all have a part to play in keeping each other healthy during this time. I know it is easy to feel lonely and isolated as we practice social-distancing and it can be hard to get motivated to exercise our bodies and our minds.
That’s why the Blue Door Neighborhood Center® wants to help you get connected and stay fit.
Many of the programming we normally would offer in-person are now available on-line. You can enjoy meditation, join our job club or even learn helpful tips on coping in the era of COVID-19.
Fitness instructor GiGi Tonye’ is also offering live, online classes to replace the very popular fitness sessions she normally teaches in-person at the Blue Door Neighborhood Center. She’s offering Zumba Tuesdays at 6pm and Saturdays at 11am. Yoga is Wednesdays at 6pm and Saturday at 10:15am.
For details on all our classes check out our calendar of events.
And, as always, the programming is free.
Stay Healthy, Stay Home
Sheltering in place in Chicago can be hard – but it is also an opportunity!
Is there anything you’ve wanted to do, but normally find yourself complaining that you, “Just don’t have the time”? Well, no more excuses. Use this “bonus” time to read more, make music, write letters, try healthy recipes or challenge yourself to walk 10,000 steps a day in your house or your yard.
To learn the latest on COVID-19 in Chicago, please go to the City’s website where there is helpful information on testing, as well as links to resources for food, financial and employment assistance and much more.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the national source of truth on how to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
If you are a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) member, read the latest on how BCBSIL is helping you stay informed about COVID-19 and access the care and coverage you need, including telehealth and pharmacy.
There’s a lot of uncertainty about how long it will take us to overcome this pandemic. At this time, we’re planning on re-opening our doors in accordance with Illinois' shelter in place guidance. That’s when we’re going to be debuting our new hours, designed to better meet the needs of our visitors:
- Mon–Thurs: 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.
- Fri: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- Sat: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
- Sun: Closed
Until then, stay safe and healthy.
