It’s Official: State of Emergency Almost Everywhere

Health news: Coronavirus survivability timelines for different surfaces, via NPR based on a new scientific study.

What’s Open - Groceries

Grocery stores should still be open - but check their hours; many are closing early so their staff can clean and restock. Note that low supplies should be a temporary issue while supply chains catch up; some ideas for ordering delivery.

What’s Open - Pharmacies

Pharmacies will still be open - but check hours, and please call the pharmacist if you just have questions.

What’s Open - Delivery Services

  • Instacart has a new Leave At The Door feature.
  • Peapod sounds like they’re having issues with timely deliveries
  • Wilson Farm now offers delivery through Mercato
  • Whole Foods and Amazon as always offer a variety of deliveries to Prime members; personally, all non-crisis things are still being delivered on time, although finding things like oatmeal or rice available is now difficult (for the short term; long term, it’ll be fine). Amazon Fresh reportedly is hard to get a delivery from (scheduling out more than 3 days!).

What’s Closed & State Changes

Per the MA Emergency Declaration and Town of Arlington updates (note: check back, both sites updated daily!)

Other Closures Expected
