The Forsyth Institute considers the health, safety, and well-being of all in our community as our top priority. Currently, the situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak remains fluid and continues to evolve meriting both proactive and reactive management on the part of our leadership team.  We will continue to monitor the situation closely on an ongoing basis.

While there are currently no indications that anyone within our community has been exposed to COVID-19, we are taking necessary steps to plan for any scenario and to help protect our community. We are following the advice of health experts from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), both of which are the most current and credible sources of COVID-19 information.

We have instituted special health and safety procedures for all of our employees, and we are updating and communicating with them on a daily basis via internal Forsyth communications systems.
