General

Stay Home. Stop the Spread. Save Lives!
We cannot emphasis enough the importance of everyone Staying Home. People who are infected with this virus can be contagious for up to 14 days without showing any symptoms. A lot of people are asking how they can help. The best way EVERYONE can help is to help Stop the Spread. There essentially is nothing more important than stopping the spread. By everyone doing their part by staying home it will ultimately help save lives.
As inconvenient as this may seem, this is a temporary situation and things will get better. Please do your part by ensuring this does not become a permanent loss to a family member or loved one.
By following the necessary measures being put in place now, we can help reduce the amount of time needed to have these measures in place and hopefully avoid need for more restrictive measures in the future.
Stay Home. Stop the Spread. Save Lives!

How Our Region Can Help: While our hospitals currently have inventory to support our healthcare    workers in the short term, they are planning for a high volume of patients and their inventories will begin to deplete rapidly.  They have reached out to the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce and requested our help for soliciting contributions from businesses in the region. If your business, or someone you knowpersonally, is interested in donating items, please contact the Chamber.

Current needs include: masks (surgical & N95 any version), gowns, Tyvek suits or similar, and eye protection (face shields of any kind). Please email us:  HELP@northcentralmass.com.
