Connecticut is actively implementing programs and initiatives to assist businesses and residents during this difficult period. The state’s coronavirus response team is committed to keeping you up-to-date on the impacts of COVID-19 and how to keep yourself and others safe.
Many BioCT members are providing timely information and professional resources to help you assess the impact of COVID-19 on your day-to-day business operations.
These institutions and organizations have set up platforms where companies and individuals can contribute and share urgently needed resources.
The Greater New Haven COVID-19 Community Fund has been established in partnership with the United Way of Greater New Haven and is a community-wide effort to raise money to help Greater New Haven’s nonprofit organizations and the people they serve affected by COVID-19.
The Hartford Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund will provide flexible resources to organizations throughout the region that serve residents who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak. The Fund is designed to complement the work of federal, state and municipal government efforts and expand local capacity to address all aspects of the outbreak as efficiently as possible.
The Medical Reserve Corps needs volunteers, doctors, nurses, and medical professionals to help out with COVID-19 response. Whether you are retired, active in your profession, a community member, or a student, we need your assistance. Open to medical and non-medical volunteers 18 years or older.
Volunteers will assist in the following tasks:
• Provide medical screening and support in mass care settings
• Assist with patient tracking at planned events
• Support medical countermeasures (MCM) distribution and dispensing activities
• Assist with planned and unplanned public health activities
CONNSTEP and CBIA are working together with the Connecticut Department of Administrative Services, the Connecticut Hospital Association, and others to organize resources to serve the urgent needs of those on the frontline battling COVID-19. If you are a company with available materials and/or production capacity, we may be able to use your resources. And, if you can offer supplies or need supplies, you are at the right place to be connected.
In this unprecedented time, BIO wants to ensure critical research and development programs can continue. The Coronavirus Hub connects companies with capacity and resources with those that need them. Users can post requests for urgently needed items and announce the availability of supplies and capacity. The portal connects in real-time through customized and searchable postings. Thank you, Healthcare Ready, for helping facilitate connections for supplies and resources.
