Gloucester prepares for and evaluates impact of corona virus

Tuesday, March 17, 2020


Officials have started to evaluate how the new corona virus epidemic might impact tourism in Cape Ann and the North Shore.


Discover Gloucester Executive Director Elizabeth Carey said, “We’re trying really hard to keep our head down and keep business as usual. We want to tell people, ‘We’re open for business but please be certain to use the appropriate amount of precaution.’ And we’ll just see what happens.”


Discover Gloucester is posting information on how Gloucester has and is preparing for COVID-19 on its website –


After Gov. Charlie Baker on Tuesday declared a state of emergency in Massachusetts due to the virus, organizations and schools started launching websites for sharing news and updates related to the outbreak. Colleges and universities across the state have also started finding alternatives as to how students can attend classes from home. Many also announced plans for online learning.


Ann Marie Casey, executive director of the North of Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau said, “It’s a cause for concern, and we’re monitoring it closely and trying to be very helpful as far as the information we can share with folks.”
