Allegany County Releases COVID-19 Emergency Response and Community Resource website

Allegany County Releases COVID-19 Emergency Response and Community Resource website

Allegany County Government released an online community resource guide for the COVID-19 state of emergency. The online tool offers a variety of features to better connect the community with resources being organized by the government, local businesses, and charities. 

“This is an incredible testament to the strength of the community here in Allegany County in bringing this tool together,” said Jake Shade, President of the Board of County Commissioners. “We believe it will support thousands during this crisis in connecting to volunteer and job opportunities, businesses who can help, and special programs to support in these uncertain times.”

The tool provides a very easy to use singular news and update portal that connects to federal, state and local government news updates, but also affords the ability for community stakeholders to submit their own information into intuitive categories. There is also a community generated online resource directory that as individuals and organizations submit their information as a resource partner, will populate the director in a categorized and geographically sorted way to help the community search for services and goods that they need. 

“We have been inundated with individuals looking to help and for ways to volunteer,” said Shade. “We’re populating that information into a volunteer board that will allow folks to both post opportunities and digitally connect with opportunities posted.” 

The county has announced it is also working on a donation portal that will allow for people to use the tool to donate money or volunteer goods digitally to be distributed to local charities and support initiatives. 

The COVID-19 Emergency Response website can be found at and was developed in partnership with Zest Social Media Solutions of Towson, Maryland.
