COVID-19 and Our Community
We now have a dedicated page for detailed Covid-19 information and resources.
In the coming weeks and months many of our neighbors are going to be adversely affected, some severely, by either the virus, the economic downturn or both.
In lieu of our Royalton Community Radio/WFVR-LP fund drive, we are asking our listeners to consider supporting one of the organizations that will be providing community support for those affected by the Covid-19 virus.
The Town of Royalton website offers daily updates.
A comprehensive, crowd-sourced list of Vermont Covid-19 resources can be found here.
For more information about how you can connect to community resources, or volunteer to help, VT Digger is maintaining a website with helpful information.
The CDC also has this page of resources for managing stress during a disaster or traumatic event.
