The Maryland Department of Aging has launched a program for seniors to receive daily pandemic related check-in phone calls with designated follow up after three missed calls.

From The Washington Times:

Under the program, any senior citizen in the state can opt in for a daily phone call between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. during a one-hour time block of his or her choice. If three calls go unanswered, a designated person such as a loved one, caretaker or neighbor will be notified and “will then be encouraged to check on” the participant.
