Coronavirus: Information & Resources
We’re all watching the news here at the Foundation for MetroWest, as we’re sure you are, regarding the concerns around the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the potential impacts to our MetroWest communities, events, and the work of our nonprofit partners.
Recently, the MBTA announced that it will aggressively clean and disinfect transit stations and vehicles. Organizations like ourselves are evaluating and making contingency plans for conferences, galas, and other upcoming events. Currently, the MA Department of Public Health states that the health risk of COVID-19 to the general public in our state is low. We are monitoring the situation and preparing response plans in order to be prepared in case the spread of the virus impacts our communities.
We know that this situation is causing anxiety, not only in our communities, but also in the nonprofit sector. Please see the collection of resources below from trusted outlets regarding the virus, prevention and treatment protocols, business continuity planning guidance, and frequently asked questions. We hope you find these resources useful as we work together to continue to serve all who live, work, play, and learn in MetroWest. We will be sure to share additional trusted resources as they become available.
