We will continue to work closely with the Massachusetts COVID Enforcement and Intervention Team, but we need YOUR help to stop the spread of COVID-19! Please follow these guidelines:
- Wear a face covering.
- Wash your hands.
- Practice physical distancing.
- Don’t share food, drinks or utensils.
- If you feel sick, stay home.
- Follow travel quarantine guidelines
- Keep your gatherings small. Even with family and friends, make sure everyone wears a mask and keep a safe distance. Parties and gatherings that do not meet state guidelines have got to stop.
- Get tested if you feel you meet the symptoms.
We all need to do more to protect our families and community. We can all save lives by taking action. When we are not practicing these guidelines, we are not only putting ourselves at risk, we are putting many others at risk.
