YARMOUTH CORONAVIRUS COMMUNITY TASK FORCE (YCCTF) 

The Yarmouth Community Coronavirus Task Force is a grassroots organization working in collaboration with Yarmouth and Cumberland County service organizations to assist with the disruptions and uncertainties caused by the Coronavirus epidemic. We stand together to help the increasing number of people who may experience food shortages, social isolation, medical and transportation needs in the wake of this coronavirus epidemic. We are part of a larger community strategy that has been initiated by the Yarmouth Town Council, our Town Manager, EMS, Police, Fire, and all public servants. It is our goal that we participate in efforts to keep core services open, provide residents with safe ways to meet their needs and work together to mitigate the epidemic and maintain our personal/community health.

The YCCTF meets biweekly and reaches out to residents through Neighborhood Communicators. The Task Force has initiated a Community Conversation for coping with Covid-19 through the winter, organized a drive-through flu shot clinic, started wastewater testing as a means of detecting ambient Covid-19 levels, developed and staffed a help line for those in need of groceries, rides and other services.
