Neighborhood Falmouth Responds to Covid-19
The Board and Staff of Neighborhood Falmouth are concerned about the effect COVID-19 could have on our members and volunteers as the virus spreads on the Cape. Because the members of Neighborhood Falmouth and many of our volunteers can be considered in the vulnerable demographic, we want to be especially thoughtful in our approach.
Our staff will monitor the websites of local, state, and the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the latest advisories that may impact NF members and volunteers. Throughout the crisis we will increase communication to our members and volunteers, keeping you informed and sharing helpful information.
On this page you will find access to information we have sent to Members and Volunteers about how Neighborhood Falmouth will continue to provide services during the epidemic. We will modify what we do to help make sure that members have access to food and medications. We will also provide members with regular phone calls to help with isolation and to answer questions.
During this difficult time, our thoughts are with everyone in our community. We wish you all good health and hopefully these difficult times will be behind us.
