Update from Sen. Lewis on the COVID-19 Pandemic

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.

As we continue to deal with the new reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, I want to thank the doctors, nurses, other healthcare workers, first responders, public health officials, grocery store workers, truck drivers, and everybody else who is working hard to save lives and help us all get through this crisis!

Our government — at the local, state, and federal levels – continues to take the necessary steps to contain the spread of the virus and ensure that our healthcare providers can safely treat those who become seriously ill. Our top priorities are expanding testing, securing additional supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE), and expanding hospital bed capacity. We are also taking the necessary steps to mitigate the social and economic harm resulting from this pandemic, by moving quickly and aggressively to support workers, small businesses, non-profits, municipalities, and others who are facing significant disruptions and hardship.

My office has compiled two resource guides that I hope residents will find helpful – one for individuals (link) and the other for small businesses and non-profit organizations (link).

We also need your feedback  to help us best respond to the public health and economic impacts of this crisis. Please take a few minutes to complete a survey that we have created, which can be found at bit.ly/LewisCOVIDsurvey.

I encourage you to contact my office at  Jason.Lewis@masenate.gov or call (617) 722-1206 if you need assistance or information, or want to bring an issue to our attention. We are working remotely based on advice from public health officials, but we will respond as quickly as possible. We continue to work very closely with municipal and state officials to serve our communities during these challenging times.
