Christenson made the decision during an emergency meeting of the city’s Board of Health, which has declared a public health crisis. The formal declaration allows the city and the board to take aggressive steps to control the spread of the virus. It also allows the city to tap resources to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, such as emergency expenditures and reimbursements from the federal government. The Board of Health has also issued an order to restrict services where members of the community gather in groups or have close physical contact with staff and other individuals. The order aff ects hairdressers, barbers, nail salons, message services, fi tness centers, body art studios and houses of worship, but the list could grow. Although daycare programs were not included in the order, Governor Charlie Baker announced that family childcare providers will be closed on March 23. “I understand that these are HELPING OUT: Pisa Pizza owner Joe Crowley (left) accepts a donation of $500 from ABH Services owner Tony Howard.

Malden now has 57 presumptive cases of COVID-19 and two cases that have been confirmed through testing. Webb explained that in order to be tested, individuals must go to their primary care health provider or an emergency room, where their symptoms will be assessed. If they meet the criteria, they will be tested for the virus. Otherwise, they are usually advised to return home and self-quarantine for 14 days. “I’m optimistic that the federal government will provide drive-through testing which we can expect to see in about a month,” said Webb. Senior Center Director Karen Colón Hayes, who was on the panel to provide information about city services, said Cambridge Health Alliance is providing COVID-19 testing for CHA patients.

Page 2 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 20, 2020 MVES to continue Meals on Wheels program By Christopher Roberson A midst of the chaos and disruption caused by COVID-19, Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) has vowed to continue its Meals on Wheels program. “Be assured, MVES will always let consumers know if services will be interrupted, reduced or cannot be delivered,” said MVES Spokesperson Shawn Middleton. “We are delivering extra shelf-stable meals to our consumers.” He also said MVES is considering the possibility of providing consumers with enough nonperishable food to last one week in the event of a shortfall in delivery personnel. “If our staff or consumers are not feeling well, there may be a temporary interruption or reduction in services,” said Middleton. Although MVES has temporarily suspended its home visitation service, staff members continue to be available over the phone. “Our staff is working either in the offi ce or remotely and can reach out to our consumers at any point and our consumers can reach their care manager when needed,” said Middleton. “Our care managers are calling them on a regular basis to assess their well-being and need for services.” JRM tightens recycling rules By Barbara Taormina T he City of Malden is trying to improve its track record on residential recycling before a major change to curbside collection kicks in on April 6. Flyers on proper recycling are going out with April water bills, notices have been posted on diff erent websites and this week Communications Director Ron Cochran moderated an online community forum about recycling with Public Works Director Bob Knox and Solid Waste Inspector Steve Prince. “We’re here to discuss a problem with contamination in our recycling,” said Knox. “Right now, we are having a high rate of trash mixed in with recycling, or plastic bags or Styrofoam, which are all things that are not acceptable in the recycling market,” said Knox. JRM Hauling & Recycling Services has told the city that, starting on April 6, they will leave any contaminated or improperly packaged recycling on the curb. “JRM is going to clamp down on us big time for contaminated recycling,” said Prince. Cochran highlighted the new Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) guide to recycling fl yer that has been translated into seven different languages and will soon be arriving with water bills. The fl yer, which JRM feels addressed its needs, is a simple outline of what can and can’t be recycled. Cochran ran through the acceptable recyclables beginning with food and beverage 505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening We are the smile care experts for your entire family cans that must be emptied and rinsed. “I think the guideline with emptied and rinsed is we’re not asking you to drive up your water bill trying to make them spotless, but they should be as clean as possible,” he said. Plastic bottles, jugs, jars and tubs are recyclable, and they also need to be clean and empty, and if there’s a cap it should be screwed onto the container. The same instructions apply to glass bottles and jars. The city currently has dual-stream recycling, which means paper needs to be separated from metals, plastic and glass. Mixed paper, newspapers, magazines and cardboard boxes need to be emptied and fl attened for pick up. Cochran said greasy pizza boxes are the big problem with paper recyclables. “It’s a great example of how a piece of cardboard can go from perfectly recyclable to contaminated,” he said, adding that residents should rip off the top of the box, which is often marked with grease, and recycle the rest as long as there are no traces of food. The fl yer also lists things that cannot be recycled. At the top of that list is plastic bags fi lled with clean plastic and glass containers. Although everything in the bag might be acceptable, it’s disqualifi ed by the bag, which isn’t. Empty plastic bags, plastic wrap and tanglers, like wire and hoses, are also unacceptable because they jam up the machines that separate items at JRM’s recycling plant. Food and liquid, clothing and linens are also not recyclable. “That’s where we are right now; we have to clean it up and recycle properly,” said Knox, adding that the city’s contract with JRM allows them to leave contaminated or improperly recycled materials on the curb. “We as a city do not want to see that happen; we’ve worked hard to get the streets clean,” added Knox. When the city signed its contract with JRM 10 years ago, it included free dual-stream recycling. Back then, the market for recyclable material was strong and JRM often picked up everything – paper, metal, plastic and glass – and brought it to its Greenworks recycling center for sorting. Now, however, recycling is a troubled industry and JRM is holding Malden to its contract, which requires paper and cardboard to be separate from otherwise clean recyclables. The City Council is now reviewing a new trash collection program that would include single-stream recycling that skips the sorting. As part of the proposed program, all households would receive a 32-gallon recycling toter with a cover. Knox and Prince fielded questions from viewers about specific items, such as cans with paper labels, corks and textiles, which can now be recycled through a separate program with curbside pickup. Cochran demonstrated how to use Waste Wizard, a search tool on the city’s trash collection webpage where residents can enter any item and receive instructions on how to dispose of it. Type in “stove” and you get instructions on White Goods collection. Waste Wizard lets users know that maple syrup bottles and juice boxes go in blue Pay-As-YouThrow trash bags along with ceramics, pumpkins and human hair. Aluminum foil, egg cartons, envelopes with windows and phone books can all be recycled. “The first week will be a painful one,” said Cochran, who urged residents to recycle properly and share information with neighbors. Knox said the city is trying to get the message out to get ahead of problems that will emerge with the stricter recycling rules. “On April 6, DPW staff will be out with Inspector Prince to help educate residents,” said Knox. “We’ve dealt with this before when we started Pay-As-YouThrow; we’ll get through this together.” Temple Emmanuel shuts down due to COVID-19 D In House Dental Plan for $399 (Cleanings, X-Rays, Exams twice a year and 20% OFF Dental work) Schedule your FREE Consultations today ue to the currently changing guidelines for the community’s safety from local and national government in dealing with COVID-19, Temple Emmanuel will cancel all religious, educational and social events for March and April, including Passover services and Community Seder.

It goes from 10 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon. Free parking! Best lunch in Malden! Get there early, have Mary top your coffee off with some Booca and search for that perfect collectible to add to your already over collected aggregation of memorabilia. Old friend Deb “Debbie Nice” Esposito is a very special person. I know, you already knew that! She wrote to me after reading in a recent column – “An Ode to Mary” – that amazing tribute to Mary Hannan from Pisa Pizza. Debbie liked it! Which is a very good thing. Cause you never want Debbie Nice on your bad side! Insert smiley face. Take it away, Deb: “Hilarious!! And so true!!! I just finished reading it. O.M.G.! If only Mary was on Facebook! Peter, as you know Mary and I have been friends around 40 years and I’ve never known her to be called ‘sweet!’ LOL! Maybe sour! Ha ha! Nah, I LOVE Mary and was part of her survival of the Hannan boys and I also had the pleasure of witnessing her in action with the customers at Pisa Pizza. And I’ve seen their fright! Mostly followed with laughter of course!! Mary and Jamie are two wonderful people/ friends. How lucky is Joe to have two fine Edgeworth girls as the face of his place! Thanks for the great read!” Anybody else miss the Ramones?! It’s been 44 years since their debut album and 19 years since Joey left us! The passage of time – mind-boggling!

One of the more memorable Ramone’s nights was at the Shapiro Gym at Brandeis on Saturday night, April 24 in 1982. “Jaybird” Whitney and I took a cab to Waltham to see David Johansen touring on his record “Live It Up” with the reigning “Godfather’s of Punk,” the Ramones, still touring on the 1981 release “Pleasant Dreams.” After the show we hailed a cab and hightailed it back to Malden to catch the last set at “Dino’s Restaurant” on Medford Street. The Dream with Gary Cherone and Paul Geary were kicking it up with all their rowdy friends from Malden and Medford. Gary and Paul eventually shot to stardom with “More Than Words,” then as the “Kings of Sea Cruises.” If you’ve seen the bumper sticker on the back of my car you’ve probably surmised I was a fan of the now defunct Blue Star Bar in Saugus. I spent quite a few long-forgotten nights there. Fond memories of one of the last of the old school Route 1 lounges. Loved the honky-tonk atmosphere at the Blue Star. I also watched a couple of the 1975 World Series games in the lounge with friends on the first big screen TV on Route 1. I saw the Preacher Jack Trio perform there on many Sunday nights – “Hurricane” Haven on skins and “Sweet Ray” Burnette on guitar – Steve Moran, the brothers Cherone (Mark, Michael and Gary) and Nuno Bettencourt joining in on the fun.

Thank you so much to both of you. The Blue Star Lounge was the oldest country music club in the greater Boston area when they closed their doors in 1994. It had been home for numerous local country acts from John Lincoln Wright to Bob Riley to Jimmy Allen – residencies by “Preacher Jack” in the early 1990’s as well as a tour stop for such national figures as George Strait, Kitty Wells, Crystal Gayle, “Boxcar Willie” and even “Tiny Tim.” “I hate to see it go, but things are changing, and you’ve got to change with them. We’ve had a good run,” Blue Star owner Ron Lane said at the time of his 21-year-old country roadhouse. “It’s the end of another era in honky-tonks around here,” said (the late) John Lincoln Wright, noting that the Blue Star and the now-defunct Hillbilly Ranch were once the region’s key honky-tonks. The club closed for good on December 17 in 1994. It reopened, for a short period of time, as a mesquite grill under a different name, with a lounge area for solo and duo acts. As for why the Blue Star is closed, Lane said it became too costly to run a club with just alcohol sales and not food; he also noted “people’s drinking habits are changing.” Picked up pieces while waiting for the much-anticipated arrival of an early spring in Malden... • Peter “The Stable Genius” Robinson correctly identified Mike DeMarco as the former owner of DeMarco’s Cafe at the corner of Charles & Pearl, now home to Pisa Pizza.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 20, 2020 Page 5 Two Confirmed Coronavirus Cases in Malden Special to Th e Advocate M alden Public Health Director Chris Webb recently reported on the latest numbers with respect to known cases of COVID-19 Coronavirus. As of Wednesday, March 18th, the City of Malden has two tested and confi rmed cases of COVID-19. As a reference, there are a total of 218 tested and confi rmed cases in the State of Massachusetts. The fi rst confi rmed case was linked to last month’s Biogen conference and the person had already been in the midst of a 14-day self-quarantine when they were informed about testing positive. The second is a hospital employee who was also under quarantine once they were suspected of being exposed. Our Health Department has been in regular contact with the residents, all protocols and precautionary measures have been followed and they are doing well. The City also has an additional 57 residents that are currently under quarantine for either being suspected of or presumed to have COVID-19. This second group includes those who have simply come in contact with someone who has tested positive, returned home from another country or have reported symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19 but have not had a confi rmed positive test. As a reference, there are a total of 1,168 in this same situation in the State of Massachusetts. We continue to follow DPH’s guidelines on both reporting and monitoring these cases. It is critical that everyone closely follow the instructions that have been widely communicated at the local, state and federal level regarding what you should be doing as individuals. This includes the following: zDo not shake hands; practice social distancing – have at least 6 feet between you and the next person; zAvoid contact with groups of people of any size; zWash your hands thoroughly and often. Use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available; zAvoid touching eyes, nose and mouth; zConstantly sanitize surfaces which are touched frequently (phones, light switches, doorknobs, tables, etc.); and zStay home if you are not feeling well, even if symptoms Malden Public Schools respond to shutdown By Barbara Taormina T he Malden School District closed city schools indefinitely last week, several days ahead of the statewide school shutdown through April 5 meant to prevent the spread of COVID-19. “We didn’t know when it would be safe to return, and we didn’t want to put an arbitrary date on it,” explained School Superintendent John Oteri during a panel discussion on the city’s response to the virus that was streamed live on Facebook Tuesday afternoon. Oteri said the school department has focused on providing meals to students who depend on schools for breakfast and lunch.

Hogan said employees are working remotely, and succession plans are in place within diff erent departments to assure essential services will continue even if department heads and directors become ill. Superintendent John Oteri offered an update on city schools, which closed last week with no date to reopen. And fi nally, State Senator Jason Lewis described the state’s two main strategies for dealing with the emergency. The fi rst focuses directly on the virus with education, prevention, testing and treatment. “The second main strategy involves all of the ramifi cations of what this is doing to our communities and our economy,” said Lewis. “We are looking at the impact on families, workers, seniors, businesses – particularly small businesses and nonprofits – and considering what we need to do to provide assistance.” Lewis said he is part of a Senate task force that launched a $15 million emergency fund to support local boards of health and is now working to expand unemployment benefi ts and establish measures to prevent evicour community. However, we also realize that at an individual family level, fi guring out how to handle school closings, and/or being home from work, presents a very real fi nancial challenge.” Like all credit unions, Mass Bay Credit Union is owned by the members who choose to do business there.

One person asked if city parks would be closed. Webb said they will remain open for residents to get fresh air and exercise but not for organized sports or a place for people to congregate or socialize. “Keep your physical distance as you should at all times,” said Webb, who also warned families to keep children off playgrounds. Cronin said his team has been working with senior housing facilities, which are closed to most visitors, with information and advice about prevention. And Lewis responded to a question about a shelter in place order explaining that the state has no plans to take that step at this time. He added that the state’s decision does not keep cities and towns from issuing a community lockdown. During the livestream about 250 residents were logged in and watching.

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 20, 2020 Supermarkets packed as nervous shoppers face COVID-19 threat Stop & Shop say’s stocks will be replenished; health, safety prioritized By Tara Vocino W ith the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) well underway, grocery stores in Malden and nationwide are affected with long lines and some empty shelves. At Stop & Shop supermarkets in Malden, Revere, Saugus and Everett last Friday afternoon, the story was the same: Lines were long, and food staples normally sought for blizzards, such as dairy and meat, were being replaced by eggs, toilet paper and hand sanitizer leaving store shelves temporarily empty. But store managers say everyone should remain calm as supplies will be replenished immediately. “Some health and beauty care products as well as cleaning products – including Purell hand sanitizer and Lysol disinfecting wipes – are limited in supply on a national level,” Stop & Shop External Communications and Community Relations Manager Maria Fruci wrote in an email last Friday night. “At this time, fixed amounts of those products are being distributed to U.S. retailers.” Simultaneously, Stop & Shop’s sales trends were boosted locally as well as nationally. “Stop & Shop is seeing increased sales on items, like hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, Lysol sprays, bleach, antibacterial soap and other cleaning products, along with non-perishable items, like rice, canned soups, canned vegetables, and pasta sauce,” Fruci wrote. Despite rising sales, their top The egg shelves were bare except for this sole container containing broken eggshells. (Advocate Photo by Tara Vocino) priority is the safety and health of associates and customers. Stop & Shop has amplified its cleaning and sanitizing efforts to ensure customers can shop with confidence. “Upon entering all our stores, disinfecting wipes are available near the entrance, and customers are welcome to wipe down carriages, hand baskets, and ScanIt! devices before use,” Fruci wrote. “Our associates are frequently wiping down self-service locations and checkout areas with disinfectant – this includes the belts and pin pads at our registers.” Besides routine handwashing and hand sanitizing, the store has suspended food sampling programs, in-store events, and community solicitation until Stop & Shop announces reduced hours, special shopping times for elderly Special to The Advocate I n order to allow more time for associates to unload deliveries, stock shelves and better serve customers throughout the day, Stop & Shop has adjusted its hours of operation to 7:30 a.m.8:00 p.m. at most stores beginning March 16. Effective on March 19, Stop & Shop has hours specifically geared to accommodate customers 60 and older. Stop & Shop stores will open from 6 a.m.7:30 a.m. only for customers over the age of 60, who the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health officials say are the most vulnerable. Stop & Shop is making the decision to allow community members in this age category to shop in a less crowded environment, which better enables social distancing. Although Stop & Shop will not be requesting ID for entry, they request that we all respect the purpose of the early opening – and do the right thing for older neighbors. Stop & Shop will reserve the right to ask customers to leave if they are not a member of this age group. Stop & Shop is continuing to maintain high levels of hygiene and sanitation in its stores and online operations. The store is taking additional measures during this time, which include wiping down checkout areas, including the belts and pin pads, with disinfectant even more frequently. Stop & Shop will continue to follow guidance from the CDC to help keep its customers and associates safe. The Everett Stop & Shop was swamped with customers last Friday afternoon. (Advocate Photo by Christopher Roberson) further notice. Per company policy, local managers couldn’t be interviewed or photographed. Fruci couldn’t say whether customers were friendlier because of the lull or hyped up out of fear. But she did say that they do their best to support customers while keeping them safe and healthy. Customer Ed Anglin, who said he didn’t feel any panic, said there was a shortage of white vinegar and cleaning supplies, but overall, that the store was in good shape. He just returned from Venezuela and noticed people coughing in the airports. Many Stop & Shop customers had masks on. As far as toilet paper and other necessities, Fruci went on to say that the store is in close contact with suppliers, and as soon Stop & Shop associates were seen disinfecting supplies on Monday afternoon. (Photo Courtesy of Stop & Shop) as quantities become available to Stop & Shop, associates will work quickly to restock shelves and make them available to customers. “We’re also working swiftly to identify similar, alternative products and brands that may be available in the marketplace to ensure our customers have access to the items for which they are looking,” Fruci wrote. “In many cases, manufacturers are also ramping up productions.” Supermarkets plan restocking, lines long but manageable Self-serve stations are temporarily closed, but prepackaged options are still available throughout the store.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 20, 2020 Page 9 MHS celebrates Black History Month with several events By Steve Freker Malden High School (MHS) celebrated Black History Month with several events recently. A schoolwide Door Decorating Contest was held where small groups of students chose themes and creatively decorated doors of classrooms and offices throughout the three buildings of the high school. A group of “Celebrity Judges” for the contest included Malden Mayor Gary Christenson; Superintendent John Oteri; MHS Principal Chris Mastrangelo; Olympia Stroud, the High School Equivalency Coordinator from the Department of Secondary and Elementary Education (DESE) and a Malden native; MHS Administrative Assistant Judie Sullivan and MHS House Principals Heather Northrup and Marta Cabral. The overall winning Decorated Door was on Shannon Alexis’s room in Brunelli House, which portrayed a likeness of a young African-American woman, and also included was an interactive series of mini-history lessons all around the artwork which were accessible by scanning through a phone app. The “Most Malden” award winner was the MHS main office door, which portrayed the Malden High Step Team as well as some key historical events.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 20, 2020 Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and you What are severe complications from this virus? What is coronavirus disease 2019? Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. Can I get COVID-19? Yes. COVID-19 is spreading from person to person in parts of the world. Risk of infection from the virus that causes COVID-19 is higher for people who are close contacts of someone known to have COVID-19, for example healthcare workers, or household members. Other people at higher risk for infection are those who live in or have recently been in an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19. Learn more about places with ongoing spread at https:// www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/transmission. html#geographic. The current list of global locations with cases of COVID-19 is available on CDC’s web page at https://www.cdc.gov/ coronavirus/2019-ncov/locations-confirmed-cases.html. How does COVID-19 spread? The virus that causes COVID-19 probably emerged from an animal source, but is now spreading from person to person. The virus is thought to spread mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.Learn what is known about the spread of newly emerged coronaviruses at https://www.cdc.gov/ coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/transmission.html. What are the symptoms of COVID-19? Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of: • fever • cough • shortness of breath Some patients have pneumonia in both lungs, multi-organ failure and in some cases death. People can help protect themselves from respiratory illness with everyday preventive actions. • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. If you are sick, to keep from spreading respiratory illness to others, you should • Stay home when you are sick. • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. What should I do if I recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19? If you have traveled from an affected area, there may be restrictions on your movements for up to 2 weeks. If you develop symptoms during that period (fever, cough, trouble breathing), seek medical advice. Call the office of your health care provider before you go, and tell them about your travel and your symptoms. They will give you instructions on how to get care without exposing other people to your illness. While sick, avoid contact with people, don’t go out and delay any travel to reduce the possibility of spreading illness to others. Is there a vaccine? There is currently no vaccine to protect against COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to take everyday preventive actions, like avoiding close contact with people who are sick and washing your hands often. Is there a treatment? There is no specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19. People with COVID-19 can seek medical care to help relieve symptoms.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 20, 2020 Page 13 What to do if you are sick with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) If you are sick with COVID-19 or suspect you are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, follow the steps below to help prevent the disease from spreading to people in your home and community. Stay home except to get medical care You should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis. Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home People: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available. Animals: Do not handle pets or other animals while sick. See COVID-19 and Animals for more information. Call ahead before visiting your doctor If you have a medical appointment, call the healthcare provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed. Wear a facemask You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) or pets and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then people who live with you should not stay in the same room with you, or they should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Cover your coughs and sneezes Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues in a lined trash can; immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60-95% alcohol covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Soap and water should be used preferentially if hands are visibly dirty. Avoid sharing personal household items You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding with other people or pets in your home. After using these items, they should be washed thoroughly with soap and water. Clean your hands often Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Soap and water should be used preferentially if hands are visibly dirty. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Clean all “high-touch” surfaces every day High touch surfaces include counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables. Also, clean any surfaces that may have blood, stool, or body fluids on them. Use a household cleaning spray or wipe, according to the label instructions. Labels contain instructions for safe and effective use of the cleaning product including precautions you should take when applying the product, such as wearing gloves and making sure you have good ventilation during use of the product. Monitor your symptoms Seek prompt medical attention if your illness is worsening (e.g., difficulty breathing). Before seeking care, call your healthcare provider and tell them that you have, or are being evaluated for, COVID-19. Put on a facemask before you enter the facility. These steps will help the healthcare provider’s office to keep other people in the office or waiting room from getting infected or exposed. Ask your healthcare provider to call the local or state health department. Persons who are placed under active monitoring or facilitated self-monitoring should follow instructions provided by their local health department or occupational health professionals, as appropriate. If you have a medical emergency and need to call 911, notify the dispatch personnel that you have, or are being evaluated for COVID-19. If possible, put on a facemask before emergency medical services arrive. Discontinuing home isolation Patients with confirmed COVID-19 should remain under home isolation precautions until the risk of secondary transmission to others is thought to be low. The decision to discontinue home isolation precautions should be made on a case-by-case basis, in consultation with healthcare providers and state and local health departments. For more information: www.cdc.gov/COVID19 CS 314937-D 03/05/2020 Hauler to enforce recycling requirements B eginning Monday, April 6 trash and recycling hauler JRM will begin strictly enforcing current recycling requirements. As of this date they will no longer collect bins that contain contaminated recycling materials. According to JRM, Malden’s recycling has a high level of unacceptable materials and as a result, they are forced to disqualify entire truckloads from being recycled. These problems are occurring in many communities across the state. Neighboring communities such as Revere and Everett are forced to bear the cost of these disqualifi ed loads whereas in Malden, JRM has absorbed the costs. As of April 6,they will begin strictly examining recycling at the curbside and will no longer collected improperly recycled materials. To avoid any issues with the collection of your recycling, residents must pay close attention to how they prepare recycling for collection.

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 20, 2020 Baker files legislation to address municipal government challenges due to COVID-19 G ov. Charlie Baker recently announced that his administration will file a package of legislation to help address challenges to municipal governance resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, including potential delays in holding town meetings and adopting municipal budgets for fiscal 2021. The legislation would: z Amend the existing statute that authorizes town moderators to postpone town meetings by 30 days during a “public safety emergency” by adding “public health emergency” as a reason that permits postponement. zPermit town boards of selectmen to postpone town meetings beyond the statutory June 30 deadline (end of fiscal year) when the governor has declared a state of emergency and conditions prevent the completion of a town meeting. zPermit boards of selectmen, at local option, to temporarily adopt lower quorum rules. zPermit continued monthto-month spending into fiscal 2021 by towns based on the prior fiscal year budget with approval of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue’s Division of Local Services (DLS) during a state of emergency. The monthto-month authorization would continue so long as a state of emergency prevents the adoption of a budget. Cities have similar authority under existing state law. zPermit towns to access their free cash balance for fiscal 2021 spending with approval of DLS. This would be based on the July 2019 certified balance and could continue until a fiscal 2021 budget is adopted. zPermit municipal spending from revolving funds at the level set by their fiscal 2020 appropriation until a fiscal 2021 budget is adopted. zAuthorize a three-year amortization period for deficit spending incurred as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. The default rule would require a fiscal 2021 tax rate to provide for one-year amortization, and this change would follow the 2015 prece~Letters to the Editor~ Lipper-Garabedian delivers update on COVID-19, swearing in Dear Editor: These are incredible and frightening times in which we are living.

It will not be this week. For now, I continue to Resident opposes single-stream recycling option Dear Editor: I am responding to the Malden Advocate article published on March 13, 2020, titled “New Trash Plan Provides Options.” The City Council’s plans for Malden’s trash are sensible, and I appreciate the work that went into reaching this compromise. The plans for recycling strike me as very unwise and even counterproductive. The article says, “As part of the new program, the city will move to single-stream recycling, which means all glass, plastic and paper can go into the new covered toters. ‘The proposal comes with some costs,’ explained [Parking Department Director Ron] Hogan. The City’s trash hauler, JRM, will charge $200,000 a year for the switch to single-stream recycling, and $50,000 a year for the additional work involved in curbside collection.” Exactly why does Council plan to move the city to single-stream recycling? I imagine some councillors believe it will be easier for residents, but there are at least two big reasons why Malden should not go to single-stream: 1. It will evidently be an expensive change, to the tune of $250,000 per year. 2. More importantly, it is contrary to what we know about contemporary recycling. The days are long past when the U.S. could simply send tons of single-stream recyclables to China or other distant places and trust that our former trash would miraculously change into benign new usable, and non-polluting, materials. China is now inundated with its own trash to be recycled, and the same is true of “alternative” destinations like Vietnam and Malaysia. They no longer will accept single-stream, which usually means contaminated and not recyclable. As a result, tons of our supposedly recyclable trash ends up in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Another destination, sadly, is likely to be landfills here in the U.S. If Malden residents and City Councilors really want to make a positive contribution by recycling, then we will have to move in the opposite direction, toward more careful sorting of different recyclables. This is what the U.S. recycling industry wants, because sorted, clean materials (not a mishmash of dirty mixed trash) is what they want and can use. In other words, there is no sustainable market for single-streamed recyclables. For a solid and informative discussion of contemporary recycling issues I recommend people read “You Can’t Recycle Garbage,” by Edward Humes, in the July/August 2019 issue of Sierra Magazine. I hope the Malden City Council will move to put the new trash plan into effect soon. But I hope they’ll reconsider their plans for recycling, and create a system that will support a positive, productive approach, and not just the illusion of “doing something for the environment,” which only results in more piles of garbage, here or elsewhere.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 20, 2020 Page 15 Most topsy-turvy, eventful sports week in modern history leads to...no events By Steve Freker I Local high school sports in limbo after MIAA postpones spring start to at least April 27 Automatically, sports-wise, t has been a week like no other. For sure. The Coronavirus suddenly had turned its sights on a target in which many of us are deeply involved: The Sports World. We had already sensed its unrelenting, unforgiving approach. A trickle of rumors and agitated gossip among friends and colleagues late last Thursday quickly morphed into a veritable avalanche of postponements and suspensions. Then a lot of those, too, quickly were transformed onto outright cancellations of events, then seasons, for many of those on the lower rungs of the sports ladder. Common sense and reality intertwined. Athletic events involve prolonged, close personal contact among all involved: players, coaches and officials. Fans are grouped closely together for prolonged periods of time. All are breeding grounds for transmission of a highly contagious virus such as COVID-19. When two NBA players were announced as testing positive for Coronavirus/COVID-19, it seemed like that sealed the deal on a lot of the moves that followed. And these decisions were not being made dayby-day, mind you. Not overnight. This stuff was coming at us seemingly by the hour. MALDEN: TODAY | FROM PAGE 10 Almost three months and going strong parking on both sides of the street! Kudos to Mayor Gary Christenson, Parking Department Director Ron “The Hoginator” Hogan and Parking Department Supervisor Ernie Ardolino for thinking outside the box for the benefit of all Maldonians. • I continue my search for Malden “ghost ads” – those advertisements from bygone days that have survived urban renewal, gentrification and the Blizzard of ’78. Ads such as the one that remains on the side of the old Granada Theater (City Hall) or the old “Donald Francis” sign that is still attached to the back door of the MATV studios, or the “GorIn some cases, turn away from your laptop or the Twitter or Instagram feed on your iPhone for a minute or two... and new news would pop up. Literally, it was just a matter of about 90 minutes last Friday when some big news changed rapidly. There was talk that the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) would be allowing the state championship tournament finals to go on as planned with no fans. Then, in an abrupt about-face, the title finals were cancelled, and co-championship designations were announced. Unprecedented. Big news changed rapidly in past 10 days All of this came after a full couple days of all the major professional sports, first NBA, then NHL and then MLB, all suspending operations “until further notice” and virtually every college league in every sport cancelling the spring sports season. Shocking, to say the least, for those embedded in the sports world. Many colleges had already cancelled on-campus classes by last Friday, and those that had not followed suit earlier this week. The biggest jolt locally was when it was announced that schools would be closed “at least two weeks” in the communities of Malden, Everett, Revere and others in the immediate area. don’s” sign that greets you as you enter Malden Access TV a.k.a.

Rest peacefully, Angeline Caiazzo. that postponed the planned start of the spring sports season for local high schools and middle school athletics, which had been this past Monday, March 16. The hard-and-fast rule of course, is that if school is not in session, there are no athletics in action. Over this past weekend, Governor Charlie Baker upped the ante on the school closing situation in Massachusetts due to spreading Coronavirus, closing all schools in Massachusetts until at least April 6. The MIAA had initially issued a directive last Friday stating the start of the spring sports season would be postponed until March 30. This move already pointed to the very good probability of a shortened spring season for all, considering baseball, lacrosse, softball and tennis customarily field 16-20 games per season. MIAA postpones spring sports start until April 27 Following Governor Baker’s weekend announcement of a longer, statewide school closing directive, the MIAA came back with another postponement date: Monday, April 27. At this time, this date means that the preseason starts on this date, not game play. It is line with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and presidential advisory over the weekSHUTDOWN | FROM PAGE 5 Oteri, Massachusetts Commissioner of Education Jeffrey Riley has exempted schools from going beyond 185 days. In Malden, which had one snow day early in winter, the last day of school will be June 19. Parents also had questions about distance learning, but Oteri said days lost to the shutdown are considered nonschool days. “There will be no teaching of new material, or any work or assignments to be graded,” he said. The district will, however, be providing enrichment and learning activities to keep students engaged, much like summer reading lists. end urging no gatherings of 25 or more persons for eight weeks. The MIAA also stated that it intends to keep the same end-of-season calendar parameters as to postseason tournaments and their conclusion. At this time, the postseason state tournaments would begin on June 7 and conclude with championship finals in baseball and softball on June 20. An April 27 start of the season almost certainly means a shortened regular season for most if not all spring sports. Some in the local high school sports world have speculated possibilities of regular seasons with just league games played, 8-12 at most, if the season is abbreviated, calendar-wise, to four weeks in May and a week in June. Nothing has been directed or marked out by the MIAA in that regard. It is still way too early to forecast much of anything due to the ever-changing scenario. Fluid situation equals ever-changing scenarios A word being used frequently by the decision-makers in all areas and levels has been “fluid,” and that’s exactly what we are dealing with these days. It was very unfortunate that high school student-athletes were not able to play their final championship games. There are plenty of local student-athletes who saw their college seasons disappear in one email last week. There are hundreds of kids locally and thousands statewide whose spring seasons are set squarely in limbo right now due to the Coronavirus and necessary steps taken to keep them safe health-wise. Yes, many can and have said, “It’s only sports. The main thing is to keep people safe,” and they are 100 percent correct. But it is still very appropriate and positive to feel and express compassion for all the college and high school people and others associated with the sports world whose lives, goals and aspirations have been put on hold while we face this international crisis. It is often said that dealing and coping with adversity is a major part of participating in sports. True words in these trying times.

Beacon Hill Roll Call records votes of local representatives from recent debate on transportation funding. There were no roll calls in the House Senate last week. TAX ON ROLLING STOCK (H 4508) House 13-141, rejected an amendment that would strike a section of the bill that would exempt from the current sales and use tax “rolling stock” which includes trucks, tractors and trailers used by common carriers to transport goods in interstate commerce. These vehicles were exempt from these taxes until 1996 when the Legislature removed the exemption and started taxing them again. Rep. Tami Gouveia (D-Acton), the sponsor of the amendment, did not respond to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking her to explain why she proposed keeping the tax on rolling stock. “The repeal of the rolling stock exemption in 1996 created negative repercussions for the interstate trucking industry that are still being felt today,” said Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading) who favors the tax exemption. “Changing these tax policies will allow Massachusetts to attract and retain a significant number of good-paying jobs in this industry while encouraging more interstate trade by local companies. An exemption would also provide important environmental benefits by encouraging companies to invest in cleaner vehicles with more fuel efficiency and higher emissions standards, resulting in improved air quality throughout the commonwealth.” (The roll call is on “striking the tax exemption.” Therefore a “Yes” vote is for the sales and use tax on rolling stock. A “No” vote is against the tax.) Rep. Paul Donato No Rep.

(A “Yes” vote is for meeting beyond 9 p.m. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the and potentially beyond.” School personnel are also urged to fi nd ways to ensure, to the greatest extent possible, that families have access to essential nonacademic services for their children – particularly special education and food services. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) will work with school districts to develop strategies and resources to sustain learning and vital services throughout this closure period. DESE has received a partial waiver from House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of March 9-13, the House met for a tothe U.S. Department of Agriculture providing greater fl exibility regarding food service in certain districts with higher concentrations of low-income students, and DESE is pursuing additional waivers for the remaining schools and districts. All nonemergency state employees working in Executive Branch agencies were told not to report to their workplaces on March 16 and 17.
