Domestic violence may increase during COVID closures, help exists

Domestic violence issues may increase in frequency, intensity and case number as a result of the closure of workplaces and schools in our area. “Spending days or weeks with an abusive partner or family member opens the door for immense physical and emotional trauma,” said Mayor-President Sharon Broome. “Unfortunately, this is the reality that COVID-19 presents to many of our neighbors, family, and friends.”
