Domestic Violence & Elder Abuse
Domestic violence is a problem that occurs in any community and can affect anyone – including older adults – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status. Nationwide, domestic violence hotlines receive more than 20,000 calls on a typical day, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). Read more.
Contact tracing is an important tool, and the MA COVID Team is part of the Community Tracing Collaborative created by Governor Charlie Baker. Everyone who has tested positive will get a call from their local board of health or the MA COVID Team, making sure they have the support they need, and to find out who they have recently been in contact with. The area codes will either be: 833 or 857. Click here for more call information. The MA COVID Team or the local board of health will then talk to those contacts, encouraging them to get tested and to stay at home to avoid spreading the virus further. Answer the call, stop the virus! Visit mass.gov/matracingteam for more information.
