Volunteers in the neighborhood on Saturday!

Be on the lookout for volunteers in the neighborhood dropping off handy-dandy pamphlets filled with helpful information about COVID-19. 

See press release below:

On Saturday, a thousand City of Boston employees and volunteers will deliver printed information on COVID-19 to all homes in Boston. The pamphlet will outline details about the virus, a list of preventative measures to mitigate the spread, and a compilation of city resources, including food access sites. 

Employees and volunteers will adhere to physical distancing and hygiene, and will not be interacting with residents, but leaving information at their doorsteps. Residents do not have to come out of their houses to receive the pamphlet, and are encouraged to continue practicing physical distancing when possible. 

The pamphlet includes information in: EnglishSpanishHaitian CreoleChineseVietnameseCabo Verdean Creole and Russian. Residents may access information in additional languages through Boston.gov/coronavirus, by calling 311 to be connected with a telephonic interpreter, or through the Mayor’s Health Line at (617) 534-5050.

Note: in order to ensure that gatherings at staging locations remain under 25 people, we ask reporters to reach out to press.office@boston.gov if interested in attending.
