VISIT THE CITY OF LYNN COVID-19 RESOURSE AND PRESS RELEASE PAGE

The City of Lynn is moving forward with measures to help slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and lessen impacts on healthcare providers responding to this evolving situation. This page contains all of our Press Releases, Statements and Resources and will be updated as further information is posted

Statement from Mayor Thomas M. McGee - Posted March, 23, 2020 - 7 PM

Today, Monday, March 23, 2020, The Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced a two week, “stay at home” advisory for all residents of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Governor Baker also issued an order for all businesses which are not defined as providing COVID-19 Essential Services, to close. All non-essential businesses must close their physical workplaces and facilities (brick-and-mortar premises) to workers, customers, and the public as of 12:00PM tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24, 2020 and shall not re-open before 12:00 PM on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. All non-essential businesses are encouraged to continue their work remotely. You can find the list of businesses that are determined to be COVID-19 Essential Services here: Please email covid19.biz@mass.gov with any questions.

The order from the Governor also prohibited gatherings of more than 10 people. As we continue to work to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we are urging residents of all ages to regularly practice social distancing at all times. I want to emphasize that necessary services such as supermarkets, pharmacies and gas stations will remain open during this time. If you do need to leave your home to visit any of these establishments, you should not bring your family with you. Additionally, restaurants, bars and other retail establishments that sell food to the public will remain open, for take-out and delivery only, provided that they follow social distancing protocols set forth in the Department of Public Health Guidance.

Even if your business fits the criteria of a COVID-19 Essential Service put forward by the Governor, it is imperative that all businesses and their employees abide by all of the social distancing and hygiene recommendations below from the CDC & DPH to prevent community spread:

• Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
• Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue and dispose of any used materials. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Stay home if you are sick and call your doctor.
• Keep your distance from others - about 6 feet.

We will continue to provide regular updates on COVID-19 on the City website, social media, and through the Smart 911 emergency notification system as the situation evolves. We encourage all residents to visit the City of Lynn Health Department “Coronavirus Resources” page which includes information and links from the CDC, and to sign up for the Smart 911 updates at www.smart911.com.

As we work to mitigate this current public health emergency, we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this time.

Please follow the City of Lynn website for more updates.

Thanks For Visitng The EDIC Lynn Website!
Thank you for stopping by and visiting our website. As we move forward with plans to shape the future of Lynn, it is with the realization that we are making history.

During the next decade, you will see development where power lines once stood. It is our ultimate goal to transform the waterfront into a bustling, pedestrian-friendly destination for residents and visitors alike.

Downtown Lynn is also going through a transformation of its own. More and more urban professionals and families are moving into state of the art lofts and shopping and dining in our business district. Despite the challenging economy, there has never been a better time to provide financing to the local businesses in this city. Since 1977, EDIC/Lynn has helped to strengthen Lynn’s economy by encouraging existing companies to expand or new businesses to relocate. New ventures are coming into the former J.B. Blood Building, expansion plans are occurring for Lynn Community Health Center, the Visiting Nurses Association and longstanding establishments are continuing to evolve and grow.

EDIC had a successful first season with Lynn’s first Commuter Ferry. Sponsored by State Senator Thomas McGee, this project is being funded by the Commonwealth.

It is a remarkable time to be living or working in Lynn- a time your children and grandchildren will one day be talking about. Be proud of Lynn, the City of Firsts, and be even prouder of our efforts to make it the city of the future.

Sincerely,

James M Cowdell, MBA
Executive Director
