Boston Law Collaborative’s COVID-19 Policy

BLC’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Policy is to provide information and reassurance to help protect all of our clients, guests and employees.

To help protect BLC’s community, we have canceled all upcoming trainings, and will be sending updates once they have been rescheduled.

For those visiting our offices, we are taking precautions by washing our hands, offering hand sanitizer, implementing a “no-handshake policy,” are minimizing communal food, and suggest parties and attendees do not exchange business cards. We are also making sure that our meeting space is thoroughly cleaned before and after each use by wiping down the tables and chairs, and using Lysol spray on items.

For those who do not want to or are unable to make it to an in-person meeting, we have the capacity for videoconferencing or telephone sessions; and during this time period, we will be offering free cancellations.

BLC would like to remind everyone:

  • If you think you have been exposed to someone with the virus or are experiencing symptoms, please do not go out.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

BLC is continuing to monitor updates from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local officials, and will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions in the best interest of our clients and employees.
