Island Time, March 19-22: Staying in the Loop
March 19, 2020
Greetings MVOL visitors and Island Time readers.
With the country under a state of emergency, most public events on Martha’s Vineyard have been cancelled or postponed, so we can’t bring you our usual content today. (We are, however, bringing you baby lambs to brighten your day.)
There are many ways you can still keep abreast of what’s going on on the Island. The Vineyard Gazette will be regularly updating information that may be useful to you.
- Here is a link to what’s open and what’s closed. It includes information on restaurants that are open for take-out business only. Updated daily.
- Here is a link to the latest news on the Island about the coronavirus. Updated on an ongoing basis.
- To stay up on Island news, be sure to sign up for The Notebook, our twice-weekly newsletter with the latest news stories.
- Breaking and ongoing news will also be posted on our Facebook page and if you need a dose of beautiful photos, visit us on Instagram.
- And if you are looking for some cooking inspiration while stuck in the house, go to Cookthevineyard.com and sign up for our weekly Cook the Vineyard newsletter.
In the absence of public events, here are some suggestions for activities:
- The Martha’s Vineyard Film Society let us know that the Metropolitan Opera will be offering a series of free opera streams nightly.
- If you’re on Island and wanting to get outside and go for a hike, here is the map of Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank Commission trails and Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation Trails.
- If you’re missing live music, tune into YouTube where Island musicians Siren Mayhew and Sean McMahon held their first socialdistance-sing this week and are planning more.
The Vineyard Gazette Media Group is committed to providing you with information during this unprecedented time. At this time, we will suspend the regular Thursday delivery of the Island Time newsletter, but may send additional updates as events warrant.
Thank you and stay well.
