COVID-19

WHAT IS COVID-19?

Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 (formerly referred to as the 2019 novel coronavirus or 2019-nCoV) is a new respiratory virus that was first identified in Wuhan, China in December of 2019.

HOW IS THE COVID-19 SPREAD?

COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person. It is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land on people who are nearby (within 6 feet). It may also be possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a recently contaminated surface or object and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.

The Charlestown Coalition is carefully monitoring and assessing the developments and consequences of COVID-19 and its impact on the Charlestown Community, our partners, and loved ones. In an effort to continue addressing the needs of the community, we've compiled a resource packet to help navigate the COVID-19 crisis. Please check back frequently as this resource will be updated as new information is released.

As the Coronavirus emerged in Massachusetts in early March, the Charlestown Coalition quickly shifted our services and programming to respond to the community needs, while maintaining the City and State protocols and requirements. This report reflects the work of the coalition during the surge of COVID, from March 16-June 30, 2020.

Community organizations have compiled a list of local food resources during COVID-19. *Please note, information is subject to change. Please contact service providers directly.

We are celebrating an extra special birthday today! Ryan is truly "one of one". We've never met a young person as unique and interesting as Ryan. He showed us his great strength and fortitude with the way he has handled the aftermath of the recent car accident he was involved in. Not only did Ryan survive breaking multiple bones in his body, including his neck, but he was able to walk the stage at graduation, receive his diploma, and give a speech to the graduating class emphasizing the importance of wearing your seatbelt any time you are in a car. We want to wish Ryan an extra amazing birthday today. Happy birthday, Ryan! We are so thankful you are here to celebrate with us! ... See MoreSee Less
