Brothers and Sisters,

Current Number of Quarantined Members-4

As you are all aware, case numbers for the state are increasing rapidly, and further state-level restrictions are likely, although none have been detailed yet. The field hospital at the DCU center in Worcester has reopened and begun accepting patients.
Numbers within the City of Cambridge have been trending well below state numbers, but continue to be concerning, and Cambridge Public Schools will shift to remote learning on December 10th through at least December 16th.
Please continue to be vigilant about protecting yourselves and your coworkers. Masks, distancing, ventilation, and cleaning are particularly important, especially as case numbers increase. Notify Tech Services with any supply needs, and please reach out to any member of the Executive Board with other issues.
