Stop the Spread!

Board of Health COVID-19 Update, March 22, 2020

At the time of this announcement, there is no COVID-19 identified in any residents of West Newbury.  The BOH would like to remind you that social distancing is a must to stop / slow down this fast moving global pandemic.  More people in this Town & country need to separate themselves from others. 

Daily trips to the grocery store are unnecessary and should be avoided as much as possible.  Every unnecessary trip out of your home not only puts you and your family at risk of contracting the virus, but also puts at risk the health of all those individuals who continue to work and serve the general public at large.

To date, 2 individuals have died in Massachusetts as a result of contracting COVID-19.  We all need to do our part to help stop the spread of this invisible killer.

The local hospitals are running low on PPE (personal protective equipment), nurses & doctors don’t have the luxury of staying home with their family where they could be safe.   These individuals are working in extreme conditions for YOU.  Health care workers and local first responders are working to save you.  Please do your part to save them, STAY HOME.
