We want you to know that AARP is providing information and resources to help older people and caregivers protect themselves from the virus and prevent its spread. You can find AARP's coronavirus resources at We also point you to, and your state and local health agencies for the latest information.

Bring your smartphone and join us for a free hands-on, intermediate workshop and learn how to get the most from your device. If you’ve mastered the basics and you’re ready to learn more, this workshop is for you.
