This is an unprecedented time for our nation and we have many challenges ahead to overcome the effects of COVID-19. However, I have a strong belief that if we work together we can get the job done.

Despite these uncertain times, the Commonwealth has been working 24/7 to do everything possible to understand what lies ahead and mitigate the damage. I can honestly say that the communication I have had with the Baker-Polito Administration, Senate Leadership, and our public health and safety officials has been excellent, and I am grateful to have a committed government network now more than ever.

To my friends on the South Shore who rely on my office as a source of updates from your state government, I want to thank you and wish you and your families all the best as we move forward together. I will continue to post updates and advisories on this page as new information becomes available.

Please continue to reach out to me and my staff with suggestions, concerns, and needs at 617-722-1646 or at Patrick.O’[email protected]
