Www.louisianaworks.net calm: You can call a special Calm Keeping Calm through COVID Hotline if you feel overcome by stress, fear, and fear of the uncertainty surrounding this emergency. This links you to qualified, compassionate counselors who can provide help and point you in the right direction for mental health and substance abuse treatment. We developed a medical volunteer website to mobilize healthcare students and graduates from Louisiana universities and colleges to help the local healthcare workforce, which is rapidly becoming overburdened.
Louisiana active members and retirees can also use the website. Involved members or retirees of Louisiana’s healthcare workers who are willing and able to help may also use the website.
Delta has stepped forward to assist Louisiana during this difficult period. Volunteer medical personnel wishing to travel to Louisiana will do so for free on Delta Airlines. Healthcare staff must register and become credentialed through Louisiana Volunteers in Action (lava.dhh.louisiana.gov) before arriving.
