Anyone needing services, or anyone wishing to volunteer, should call Caroline Tudino, Social Service Coordinator or Marie Marcotte, Senior Center Director at 401-268-1579, Monday to Friday 8:30am - 4:00pm.

General guidance from our Rhode Island Department of Health:
Anyone who thinks they might have COVID-19 should call their healthcare provider. These people should not go directly to a healthcare facility without first calling a healthcare provider (unless they are experiencing a medical emergency).
 
Everyone needs to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19.
  • Stay home from work if you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Use warm water and soap or alcohol-based gel.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. 
  • Whenever possible, avoid close personal contact in public.
 
The Rhode Island Department of Health has launched a 24-hour hotline for anyone with questions about the Coronavirus (401-222-8022). Residents can also call 211 after 4:30 p.m. for assistance.
People with general questions about COVID-19 can also visit www.health.ri.gov, write to RIDOH.COVID19Questions@health.ri.gov, or call 401-222-8022.
