The Berkshire Eagle reports emergency responders and other community members in the Northern Berkshires have come together to form a COVID-19 Operations Center to serve as a centralized informational hub — a clearinghouse of information that can provide residents and agencies answers to questions regarding the outbreak.

They also will be coordinating the needs for medical supplies and resources and the delivery of those resources to the places with the greatest need.

The center already has set up a COVID-19 information hotline, 413-662-3614, which is answered by volunteers.

The center will serve the communities of Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, New Ashford, North Adams, Savoy, Williamstown and Stamford, Vt., as well as the college communities of the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and Williams College.
