CEIT_collage_Buy_The_WaySince March, Commonwealth Print Services (CPS) has swiftly fulfilled orders for organizations across the Commonwealth to assist in public health campaigns related to COVID-19. CPS is called upon to print, copy, and deliver the signage and materials that inform communities about testing sites; mask compliance and social distancing guidance; and other crucial public safety information.

CPS recently gained a new customer, the COVID Enforcement and Intervention Team (CEIT), a cross-agency response team established by the COVID-19 Command Center. Since October, CPS has printed thousands of materials, such as fliers, posters, and mailing cards, for a public messaging campaign organized by the CEIT.

The campaign consists of multi-language outreach to communities at the highest risk of COVID-19 transmission. According to a press release from the Baker-Polito Administration, “The goal of the public messaging campaign is to ensure residents know they live in a high-risk community and reiterate the importance of wearing a mask and other best practices to stop the spread.” Outreach began in September among the five communities with the highest incidence rates, Chelsea, Revere, Lynn, Everett, and Lawrence, and has since expanded to more communities across the Commonwealth.

“It’s busy, but important work,” said Ed Devlin, Director of CPS. “The shop is printing each message in five to six languages to help CEIT get the public health guidance out to underserved communities, especially among non-English speakers.”

Since September, CPS also has experienced an increase in customers returning to day-to-day operations, with demand returning for regular printing, copying, and post-press services from state agencies and municipalities. Learn more about CPS on their website and contact cps@mass.gov for more information.
