Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (called COVID-19, commonly) first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Coronaviruses are respiratory viruses and are generally spread through respiratory secretions (droplets from coughs and sneezes) of an infected person to another person. Symptoms of novel coronavirus include fever, cough and shortness of breath, and, in severe cases, pneumonia (fluid in the lungs).

As this is an evolving situation, the Board of Health will continue to monitor information provided by the CDC and the MA Department of Public Health through announcements and conference calls and provide the most up to date information to the public.
