  • Massachusetts Department of Public Health has published several emergency orders which are published at http://www.mass.gov.   
  • The Board stated that all portable bathrooms and public bathrooms, not in support of essential services, shall remain closed during this public health emergency.
  • The Household Hazardous Waste Day scheduled for May 9th has been postponed to a date to be determined.
  • The Board of Health banned the use of cold bars, hot bars, buffets or self-service type foods at all grocery and convenience stores.
  • Per order of the Board of Health, all playgrounds are closed until further notice.
  • The Board of Health would like to remind residents to wash reusable bags after each use as the virus can live within the bag.
  • If anyone displays symptoms of COVID-19 (including a fever, cough, or shortness of breath), they should not report to work or school and they are advised to contact their primary care physician.
  • Allow distance (at least or about 6 feet) between yourself and others, especially where COVID-19 has been confirmed in surrounding communities. This is especially important for anyone over 60 years old, and anyone with underlying medical concerns that may put them at a higher risk of contraction of the virus.
  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus, which is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:
    • People in close contact with others (within about 6 feet)
    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person sneezes or coughs
