Default Effects of COVID on DV

With more people staying home, and some of them being sick and "grumpy"...

Those of you who know people who might be in danger of DV problems, please call and check on those people. Ask questions that they can answer without "answering". Give those people a lifeline.

And please don't forget that men can be victims of DV as well as women. Men are less likely to be killed, and more likely to be silent.

Reach out to those you know - by phone, by email, by text. Being cooped up with someone is a recipe for disaster.

Fwiw, most courts are only dealing with emergency issues and DV cases.

But, making sure that people are safe and do not need court, and have a place to flee to is a good thing.

VERY good suggestion! Thank you, it’s something I had not thought about.

"Several cities are already reporting jumps in domestic violence cases or calls to local hotlines. Some shelters around the country say they're full -- some after reducing their capacity to maintain social distancing -- and struggling to help survivors. And with gun sales setting records, advocates worry that the next few weeks could be especially dangerous. "
