The line establishes one central contact for family members of nursing home and rest home residents and will help answer questions about the care their loved one is receiving during the COVID-19 outbreak. The line is available seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

An ASL Now Hotline from CSD (Communication Service for the Deaf) has been established where residents can ask questions about COVID-19 and get support. Visit www.csd.org or call via videophone at 833-682-7630.

The goal is to make local data available to government and nonprofit agencies to help them plan and support programs and services. All residents of the City of Worcester, Shrewsbury, Holden, Grafton, Millbury, Leicester and West Boylston are asked to answer the questions on the survey. The survey is offered in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Albanian and Russian. Answers to the survey will remain anonymous.
