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.

After listening to each of the Turn It Around members share their reasons for why they're grateful for TIA, it was obvious that the ongoing theme that emerged centered around their heart for community. Our program is a haven where young people can explore who they are and discover their immense value and potential while playing an active role in addressing childhood adversities and substantial barriers to healthy development collectively. It is because of youth like these that their courage, willingness and sense of community continues to be an essential force for positive change within our neighborhoods. And we're thankful for YOU!

"I joined Turn It Around over a year ago when I was at my lowest point. Things were difficult, I didn't have anyone to lean on or to talk to. Then my parents brought me to a Turn It Around event and introduced me to the staff. After becoming an official member, things got better. Turn It Around gives me the strength to think and be positive, every last one of you has helped me, I love you all." - One of the responses from a Turn It Around member during our annual #Gratitudecircle
