CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19 UPDATE #4
Wednesday, March 18, 2020
COVID-19 Update #4 of what I’m sure will be many more updates about COVID-19. This update contains: the latest COVID-19 updates from Beacon Hill, the legislative work I’m leading to support all of our towns and cities during the pandemic period, today’s push from me and more than 30 of my legislative colleagues for Governor Baker to take more robust action to protect public health, and suggestions for how you can be part of the solution by helping your community.
In an effort to make all the news and accurate information on the coronavirus a little easier to follow, my staff and I are compiling a page with the latest COVID-19 updates from Beacon Hill on my website. Please bookmark the page - we will update this list of actions taken by the state government two or three times each week, with a date stamp and links to official sources.
Keeping our town governments functioning and planning for elections in a time of necessary social distancing is vital to safeguarding our democracy. As the Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Municipalities and Regional Government, I am at the heart of this legislative work, which is happening almost around the clock. Here’s what you can do to help: review H.4572, An Act to address challenges in town governance resulting from COVID-19. Send any comments or input you have to me at email@example.com and my House counterpart, Chair Jim O'Day, at James.ODay@mahouse.gov. Due to COVID-19, the State House is closed to the public so we are accepting written testimony only. All testimony is due by 12PM tomorrow, Thursday, March 19. This deadline will be strictly enforced.
