Special to the Independent
As you now know, Massachusetts recently declared a state of emergency over the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). It is of the utmost importance that we take strong, proactive measures in order to slow the rate of infection and protect those most vulnerable in our community.
We’ve put together the most up-to-date information about the current outbreak in our area, public health measures being taken, and resources for those most affected by these changes.
My office has begun working remotely until further notice, following guidelines from public health officials. During this time, we will continue to be available to all East Boston residents who require assistance or have questions. Please do not hesitate to call our office on any and all issues. We can be reached at (617) 722-2400 or (857) 293-1465, or by emailing Adrian.Mada[email protected], [email protected], or [email protected]
