Thought I would share some resource details with folks. This is information I gleaned today (Friday), but as we all know, things keep changing constantly these days!. Being on the Ludlow side of town, I know more about what is happening over this way. Feel free to email other updates to me and I will pass them along.
As far as Rutland is concerned, Price Chopper has senior hours from 6 – 7 AM daily, whereas Hannafords has senior times those same hours, but only Tues – Thurs. Shaws in Ludlow has senior hours on Tues & Thurs from 7 – 9 AM. Tina at the Tyson Village Store has no paper products or cleaning supplies, but they are still open and making sandwiches.
Many folks are aware that the Woodstock Farmers Market will process orders for pickup (no sandwiches being made!), but you need to submit your order online or by phone 24 hours in advance. Mac’s Market told me they are operating as usual.
Rite Aid in Ludlow is keeping to the regular schedule for the time-being, but Ludlow Pharmacy is only using their drive-up window. The banks is Ludlow have different operating procedures. At the moment Peoples United is open 9 – 2 both inside and at the drive-through. Berkshire only has drive-though service but is operating with their regular hours.
The Town Office and the Lister’s office are closed to the public for the time-being but personnel will be available for phone and email inquiries. As previously noted, Plymouth Emergency Management has created a new email account specifically for COVID-19. If anyone has a COVID issue or would like to be put on a ‘at risk’ list, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, Okemo Valley TV is a wonderful resource. We do not have cable, but were able to see the latest Select Board meeting on their website. Cable TV channels can go to the Schedules page of the website (okemovalley.tv). The website provides local programs (and health info.from the CDC & State of Vermont), plus the 10-most recent programs will show up on the homepage. For a full searchable catalog of video on demand, go to the Videos page (okemovalley.tv/videos).
I hope that some of this information will help folks navigate these changing and stressful times. Take care & be well.
