Here is how things stand at the moment:
  • Boston Public Schools started with all students, fully remote on September 21. The first students will return to school today, October 1 for the hybrid model.
  • City Hall is only open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you need to visit City Hall for essential services, you must make an appointment.
  • NEW: As of October 5th, Food courts may open with social distancing, and capacity limits, movie theaters go up from 25 people to 50% capacity with a 250 person limit, golf carts can be used by more than one person, and golf hole flags may be used.   
  • The Boston Public Health Commission and Mass. Department of Public Health have found that reusable bags are safe amid COVID-19, residents can use them again while shopping in the City. Disposable bags will not be given at stores, only reusable ones with a charge of at least 5 cents.
  • We have free breakfast and lunch sites across the City for youth and teens through the Summer Eats program.
  • All Boston Public Library locations are closed. Through the "BPL to GO" program, the Library will allows patrons to “order” items by placing a hold on them, then safely picking them up from select branches.
  • All Mass. residents over the age of two must wear a face covering or mask in public.
  • There is now a "Safer at Home Advisory" in effect in Massachusetts. People over 65 and those with underlying health conditions should stay home, with the exception of essential trips for healthcare and groceries. Restrictions on gatherings of more than 10 people remain in effect.
  • The MBTA has reduced its services. All riders and employees are required to wear a face covering.

October 4th:  Italian Ravioli Two Ways - Online Cooking Class by Classpop!by Classpop!


Can you believe that it’s October?!

The weather is definitely turning cooler, and the leaves are starting to turn.  Our Covid numbers continue to increase, and the Mayor thinks that we will be in the red by the time you are reading this.  Not sure what that will mean for what will be open or closed in the city.
But, the first BPS students are starting school in person today! 

With the ever changing world, we are not sure what that will mean for Halloween and trick or treating this year.  The West End Community Center has decided to cancel our Halloween Event this year to keep everyone safe.  Between the safety guidelines, the uncertainty of the status of events, and the safety of the people who would run the event, we have decided not to have the event.  We will miss all of the storybook characters, superhero’s, animals, princesses, witches, and more!  We will be sharing some ideas on how to celebrate in our next newsletter!

Continue to be safe and healthy! Continue social distancing, washing your hands, and wear a mask!
We will get through this!
