Update on 2019 Novel Coronavirus

There is new information every day regarding the novel 2019 Coronavirus, and some of it may sound alarming. At this point, the Massachusetts DPH has determined that there is documented community spread of the virus in the state. We recommend abiding by strict "social distancing" rules - avoid large groups of people or other social events. It is also important to prevent illness by doing everything you normally do to prevent a cold or flu: wash your hands, keep your hands off your face and eyes/nose/mouth, and stay home/keep your children home when sick.
