Thank an Essential Worker

We hope it is clear to everyone that the shelter in place or stay at home order is mandatory. We understand this is a challenging time, so we are encouraging all Nevada County to volunteer to take the extra step of educating friends and neighbors on this issue and bring compassion, kindness and sense of civic duty to the challenges we are facing. Even our friends at Yubanet are participating and have changed their Facebook profile. Another simple way to participate is to thank an essential worker. From medical professionals on the front lines of this pandemic to public works crews who are keeping the roads safe and wastewater managed at the County, to grocery store clerks who keep the shelves stocked, our local essential services workers deserve our thanks.

Recently we saw evidence that even small acts of gratitude make a huge difference to those working these jobs via a Facebook post from 211 Operator, Micah Cone.

“Yesterday, a caller told me that I’m ‘the nicest person she’s ever talked to’. That caller was in her 70’s. Today, another caller told me that ‘on a scale of 1-10, he gives me a 20.’

This sort of feedback is critical. Not only to me, on a personal level, and a Customer Service professional, but especially right now. Those words lifted my spirits more than you can possibly imagine.

Thank you to those two callers, and to all callers who express their gratitude for 211’s services in general, and mine in particular, and thank you to my friends and family who continue to offer words of encouragement as I navigate through what is, officially, the most demanding job I’ve ever had.

I’m not a healthcare worker (TRUE HEROES), but I am on the frontline of this situation. And I appreciate the love I’ve been receiving.”

211 Connecting point continues to provide information and updates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please call them with non-emergency questions about available public and private resources in Nevada County.

County staff is taking on additional duties and requirements to safely keep Nevada County running. We appreciate your patience and community spirit as we navigate the coming days.
