Next Door offers ‘Advance Planning and COVID-19’
English and Spanish language videos on “Advance Planning in the time of COVID-19” are available online at www.nextdoorinc.org/advance-directive. Advance planning means making plans about health care you may need in the future.
The videos were reviewed and edited by doctors in the Mid-Columbia region. They discuss topics such as:
- What if I have to go to the hospital with COVID-19?
- Hospital treatments for the virus and their outcomes.
The videos encourage all adults to:
- Decide what care we would want if we were to be hospitalized with COVID-19.
- Make sure there is someone who would speak for us if we could not speak for ourselves.

Face covering guidelines for the public
