Northern Berkshire Regional Emergency Planning Committee has opened an operations center to coordinate efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
The center will be staffed weekdays for the time being with representatives including health officials, first-responders, public safety and partner organizations.
Northern Berkshire COVID-19 Operations Center, established in partnership with the city of North Adams, will be a centralized hub for the communities of North Adams, Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Savoy, New Ashford, Florida and Williamstown, and Stamford, Vt., all mutual aid partners.
The center has also connected with Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and Williams College, both of which continue to remain open for staff and which are still housing a small number of students who could not go home when the schools closed this week.
