Human Services Director Compiles a Resource Guide for Residents Regarding COVID-19

Post Date:03/20/2020 11:00 AM

NOTE: The Town of Westport is making every effort to keep residents informed in a timely manner, but increased internet activity associated with remote service carriers may result in delays in receiving e-mails 

Department of Human Services (DHS) Director Elaine Daignault makes a statement about COVID-19 in Westport. 

Daignault stated, “The health and safety of our residents is our top priority and the Department of Human Services stands by ready to help as needed.  Many seniors and other at-risk populations may need assistance in procuring supplies for extended self-isolation.  DHS is investigating ways to provide safe and efficient help to at-risk homebound seniors and/or households.  We encourage residents to call their neighbors and offer help, while taking care to follow CDC precautions by keeping a safe social distance.  Remember that even if you are feeling well, you could still be a carrier of the virus.”

Additionally, the Department has compiled a guide that provides up-to-date financial and social services information for the most vulnerable and at-risk members of the Westport community. The guide can be found at www.westportct.gov/covid19resources

Residents are reminded to contact Human Services at 203-341-1050 or humansrv@westportct.gov if they or a neighbor has an emergency need of food or medications. 

The DHS continues to provide remote services to residents Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. via phone 203-341-1050 and/or email Humansrv@westportct.gov or check the Town website at www.westportct.gov/covid19 for more information.
