Coronavirus & Community Safety

(updated: Mar. 31, 2020)

Dear Wellspring Community,

First off, we want to wish all of you good health and wellness during this difficult period of time. With the continued evolution of recommendations concerning the containment of Covid-19, we have decided to extend our closure of Wellspring House until Monday, May 4th. All residencies scheduled between now and April 15th will be rescheduled for a later date. During this time, we will continue to monitor local, state, and federal responses to the coronavirus epidemic closely so that we are able to revisit this community decision on May 1st, to determine if an additional extension of this temporary closure is warranted.

During this continued period of uncertainty, we are recommending the following resources for our community members to stay informed and aware of Covid-19 updates:

CDC Coronavirus Page
WHO Coronavirus Updates Page
City of Boston’s Coronavirus Information
Massachusetts State Government Coronavirus FAQs

We know that this decision to temporarily close Wellspring House is a necessary step for helping to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus. We want to continue to take this step to help slow and stop that growth. We care deeply about the health and wellbeing of all our community members, and we hope that this continued sacrifice will have large ramifications in the global response necessary at this time. We hope you understand our reasons for making this decision, and we hope you remain safe, healthy, and informed as local, state, and federal authorities develop a more thorough response to the growing epidemic.

We remain hopeful that our communities, both local and global, can come together to stop the spread of Covid-19. With that hope in mind, we are happy to report that all full-time residents of Wellspring House are currently healthy, including our director, Preston. We are hopeful that you all remain healthy and safe in the coming weeks, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Wellspring sometime soon.

Here at Wellspring, we hope you all remain healthy and safe in the coming weeks.

With care,
John & Aubrey
