Senator Joni Ernst took to social media today to challenge Iowans to help those in need.

“I am challenging all of you to reach out to five of your neighbors, call or text them, especially those that are elderly or maybe those that have underlying health issues, and make sure they are comfortable and make sure they have everything that they need.”

Ernst says many people in insolation just need somebody to talk to. So she launched the #MyCOVIDfive challenge to spread kindness and not the virus.
