The new program is designed to help residents who are not coping well  with being “safer-at-home.”

ST. PETERSBURG – The city of St. Petersburg has announced “Call from City Hall,” a new program  designed to help residents cope with the isolation of staying safer-at-home.

Residents are encouraged to nominate someone who is experiencing adverse effects of isolation during safer-at-home orders to receive a call from St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, Deputy Mayor Dr. Kanika Tomalin, or Police Chief Anthony Holloway.

The program was created because, officials said, they recognize that many residents, such as seniors who live alone, may have difficulty coping during this challenging time.

“The insidiousness of COVID-19 can impact more than just our physical health,” Kriseman said. “Because of the safer at home policies in place during this emergency, it can affect our emotional well-being, too. I look forward to speaking with St. Pete residents who may need some sunshine in their day.”

The city of St. Petersburg is asking citizens to nominate a St. Petersburg resident to receive a call. Click here for a link to the nomination form: stpete.org/callfromcityhall.
