Dear MWPC Members and Supporters,
We hope you are spending time with family during this stressful time. I want to pass along an e-mail from Boston City Councilors Andrea Campbell and Matt O’Malley with an important message.
The most important role of government is to keep our neighbors safe and healthy, which is why there will likely be inconveniences and challenges to Boston’s residents and those who come into our city in the midst of COVID-19. As Bostonians, we know how to come together and overcome adversity — we’ve done it before and we will do it again with this challenge.
We all need to strike the right balance of being hyper-vigilant without succumbing to hysteria. The impact of the coronavirus is likely going to get worse before things get better and we need to do everything we can to mitigate it.
As we learn more and more about COVID-19 and its potential impacts on our region, it is important that we listen to our public health officials and take their recommendations seriously. This especially applies to our seniors, those with underlying medical conditions, and anyone who regularly interacts with them.
Below, please find links to resources from the City, State, and Federal government providing information and recommendations for residents.
- Massachusetts Department of Public Health
- Boston Public Health Commission
- United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
Let’s continue to be smart and vigilant and always take care of one another.
