Like many of you, we have been tracking the presence of COVID19 in the United States. As of this morning, Monday, March 9, METRO is closing our office. We hope to re-open in two weeks’ time, though this date is subject to change.
Our staff is in the process of rescheduling all in-person workshops, meetings, and other events. Where possible, we will migrate to phone calls and video conferences.
We encourage you to utilize the METRO-community list to share your response plans or any other trusted information with one another. We’ve already seen a number of well-done resources from libraries NYC and Westchester County.
For further information about response plans from our various levels of government, please see:
