Supporting Immigrant Survivors
During COVID-19
During the COVID-19 pandemic, our Legal Services Department has seen an increase in requests for landlord and tenant help due in part because immigrant survivors who were laid off are not able to access unemployment benefits that are available to residents and US citizens.

In response, our Legal Advocates have increased the level of case management to ensure survivors are aware of new developments as they arise and continue to receive the quality services that place their safety as a top priority.

During this time our Legal Advocates are working diligently to educate our participants about their rights and refer them to organizations that can help them fight off evictions due to unemployment.
Whether you’re 2 or 102, wash your hands for 20 seconds using warm water and soap to kill germs like the flu. Washing your hands provides excellent protection against coronavirus (and other pathogens) but you do need to scrub with soap for 20 seconds to remove those pathogens.

Twenty seconds can feel like a long time when you're standing at a sink so the common advice is to wash as long as it takes to sing the "Happy Birthday" song twice or other popular songs like the ABC's and Dolly Parton's hit song, "Jolene."

If you don't rocket through the lyrics, you should get about 20 seconds of scrub time. WTLC Advocates Sarah and Pat demonstrate how to sing "Jolene" while washing your hands to get to 20 seconds in the video above.
Here are alternative songs to sing while washing your hands:
1. "Love On Top," by Beyoncé
2. "Truth Hurts," by Lizzo
3. "Jolene," by Dolly Parton
4. "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," 
from the Wizard of Oz
5. "The Sound of Music," from 
The Sound of Music
6. "My Shot," from Hamilton
7. "Hands Clean," by Alanis Morisette
8. "Karma Chameleon," by Culture Club
9. "Stayin' Alive," by The BeeGees 
(also a favorite song for performing CPR)
10. "Toxic," by Britney Spears
