If you or your loved ones are feeling symptoms of COVID-19, the CDC is advising against going straight to the doctor or hospital.  Instead you are being asked to call the COVID-19 assessment hotline at 877-998-0880.  Someone there will ask you questions about the symptoms you are experiencing and advise you on the next steps.

JREC IS ON THE ELECTRICAL VEHICAL (EV) GRID

JREC joins other co-ops in expanding the EV charging station infrastructure. Free charging stations are available 24/7-365, at the Ladysmith and Hayward offices.  We recently received the above photo from Sydney B de Boer, utilizing the EV charger at the Hayward office. 

A regional EV charging network across Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota named CHARGE-EV, LLC. was created by JREC and 48 other cooperatives. Go to www.charge.coop for charger locations and other information regarding this EV charging network.
