Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
MNHI has implemented a multi-tactical approach to both sharing and amplifying relevant public health, City, partner and constituent information. Specifically, we are leveraging our INFO New Haven digital channels through Web, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & and monthly E-Newsletter to keep our residents, business partners and audiences beyond the Elm City informed.
New Haven is one of Connecticut’s greatest culinary cities and we want residents to know that delicious food is available through takeout and delivery and at specialty markets and grocery stores. We are also supporting retailers by informing folks they can support local merchants by purchasing gift cards online.
We know it’s important for people to still feel connected to New Haven and entertained at home. We have created a list of virtual tours at Museums, virtual art classes and activities like fitness classes. As the cultural capital of Connecticut, it’s great to know that folks can find ways to exercise their brains and their bodies while at home.
Our goal is to keep the INFO New Haven business list current. Please send any submissions or updates to directly to firstname.lastname@example.org with INFO NEW HAVEN COVID-19 BUSINESS SUBMISSION in the subject line.
Special thanks to our partners at University Properties, Visit New Haven and Town Green for providing and sharing information with us.
