A note from the N Magazine team to the Nantucket Community during the COVID-19 outbreak.
During these deeply unsettling times, our team at N Magazine is drawing strength and hope from the many heroes emerging in our island community.
On the frontlines, the doctors, nurses, administrators, employees and executive leadership of the Nantucket Cottage Hospital are representing the very best of our community, serving others with selflessness, compassion, and decisive leadership.
Unsung caregivers continue to act as critical lifelines to our elderly and homebound neighbors, not only delivering them sustenance and treatment, but also providing vitally important human connection.
Then there are our local restaurateurs, shopkeepers and business owners who are making tremendous economic sacrifices by closing their doors in an effort to curb the spread of the virus.
Down the line, from town officials on the ground to the grocery store clerks in the aisles, our team is humbled by the many examples of both profound and everyday acts of heroism made by members in our community.
They will be the lights guiding us through this unprecedented darkness. They will be the ones we remember from this time. Amidst all the grim news out there, we pledge to tell their stories and help magnify the goodness of our island community.
We’re committed to championing the critical work of our caregivers by helping communicate the very latest information. And we’re dedicated to helping our business community weather this storm however we can.
Please let us know how we can help. If you have a message to get out, or a need that must be met—please let us help spread the word. While we will follow the doctors’ orders and stay home—we will not stay quiet.
