Board of Health updated the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Upton is 7.
The exponential growth of COVID-19 here in the Commonwealth caused the Board of Health to convene an emergency meeting on April 10th. During this meeting the Board of Health announced that there are 5 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our community resulting in zero deaths, to date. In a majority vote, the Board approved the ongoing release of new cases to the public until this pandemic subsides. In an effort to mitigate further spread of the virus, the Board voted to post signage and lock gates to the entrances of all playgrounds and courts (Leland Field, Kiwanis Beach Recreation Area, VFW playground) prohibiting their use. Parks can only be used for passive recreation… e.g. walking. As a reminder, the Board of Health encourages the use of cloth face masks and asks the community to maintain the appropriate 6 feet of social distancing when in public, per the CDC guidance. These prohibitions do not include the Upton State Forest and the community garden at Stephan’s Farm. The Land Stewardship Committee has developed safe practice guidelines for the use of the Stephan’s Farm community garden for this year’s growing season.
