South Shore Health Cancels Classes and Support Groups

South Shore Health has carefully monitored COVID-19 since December, when it emerged as an international public health concern. We are well prepared. You can read more about our preparations in this article from the Patriot Ledger, including the visitor restrictions in place at South Shore Hospital.

This week, we’ve taken an additional step.

Support groups and classes that bring groups of people from outside our organization to our facilities that do not involve direct patient treatment and care are cancelled.

Any classes that involve direct patient treatment and care will continue as planned.

Here is a list of the classes and events that are canceled. If you do not see your class or event, or if you need a refund, please call the event organizer for more information.
