COVID-19 Is Impacting All of Us

These are challenging times. We’re often separated from the people we love and in many cases our work. The grocery store isn’t the place to socialize with friends like it was two weeks ago and even a walk in the park requires lots of thought and planning. There’s extra stress, worry and hand washing with less hugging, high fiving and hand shaking.

But, there are also so many more examples of courage, perseverance, determination and simple kindness.

With so much information out there it’s hard to take it all in. We thought it would be helpful to provide links to the websites of the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, Martha’s Vineyard Community Services, the State of Massachusetts the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Families First Coronavirus Response Act. These trusted sites provide useful information and facts that can help sort through the confusion.

It’s more important than ever to remember to stay connected to each other because we know that standing together we’re always stronger. At IHT, as we continue our urgent work to end housing insecurity here at home, we’ll reach out to share important information and to update you on our progress.

In the meantime, please keep yourselves and each other safe and healthy.
