Board of Health COVID-19 Update: 3/27/20

A State of Emergency has been declared by the Baker-Polito administration.  Click here for more information. The Town of Conway has also declared a State of Emergency; click here for the posting.

What can you do to protect yourself? 

The most important advice is to limit your travels to just the essentials; food and medications.  Keep at least 6 feet away from anyone you encounter outside of your home. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your face, as the virus enters through the nose, mouth and eyes.

Please Note: The latest information from Vice President Pence is “We are asking anyone who has traveled out of the New York City metropolitan area to anywhere else in the country to self-isolate for 14 days.”

Check here for more important information from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health about protecting yourself and loved ones. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) also lists information on preventing the spread of COVID-19

Where can you go for more information?

Conway is part of the Franklin Regional Council of Governments or FRCOG.  Lisa White is our Regional Public Health Nurse through the Cooperative Public Health Service, a regional health department serving thirteen towns in Franklin County. She informs the Conway Board of Health of any COVID-19 cases in our area, and the Board in turn will inform the community. Personal information on those testing positive is not disclosed.

The two best sources of information are Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MADPH) and The Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

Our local contacts if you have questions or concerns are Carl Nelke, Chair, Conway Board of Health and

GW Murphy, Director, Conway Emergency Management Department
