Message from the Town Manager

The following was submitted to The Block Island Times by Town Manager Maryanne Crawford:
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Block Island community. I am your new Town Manager, Maryanne Crawford. Thanks to all of you for the warm welcome to the island, which, to me, reflects a strong sense of community and caring for one another. It’s palpable and refreshing. 
I am a native Rhode Islander and spent decades renting a house in Minister’s Lot with my husband and children and we love the island.
I am reaching out to the Block Island community in light of the increase in COVID cases in the state of Rhode Island, and the surrounding New England states, to ask for your help. This past week we have had two positive COVID cases here. Appropriate contact tracing is being completed by the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH).
The next three weeks are critical. I would like to remind you all to continue to wear your masks out in public and in group settings, to social distance, and limit your contact group to the same 10 individuals. Most of us do that by habit
