We have individual checkins too. I often wondered about formalizing it so
we can be sure no one falls through the cracks. I’d love to hear what you
come up with.

During the first 6 months of the pandemic, we formed pods of adjacent
houses and made sure to hear from each other in the pod - first about
daily, then every few days.
Some pods are still meeting actually.
