Jenny and her lunch lady crew at the West Tisbury School prepare more than 1000 meals a week for Island children and families for curbside pick up. Always an optimist, Jenny believes that the silver linings in all of this are that we learn that we can make do with less, and that we come to truly appreciate that food is love and giving is powerful. She says, “I feed my soul by feeding others.” the Island has never appreciated her more.
The Times’ coronavirus coverage, chronologically. How the virus affected Martha’s Vineyard, and how the Island community has responded. Coverage going back to Feb. 12, when the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital issued a travel alert about a new coronavirus. Soon after, we followed the return to the Island of Vineyarders who had been trapped on a cruise ship that was not allowed to dock in Southeast Asia, due to concerns about the virus. Since then, we’ve highlighted daily news updates, resources, the good news, and the Island heroes that have populated our days.
Since that time, we’ve run more than 400 stories.
All public health stories related to the coronavirus will be accessible to our readers, and not behind The Times’s paywall. – The publishers
In the Coronavirus Chronicles, Islanders share their experiences of the pandemic and the stay-at-home orders. Some write about loneliness and isolation, others about living with the idea that they may actually have the virus.
