As a reminder, social distancing has proven to be one of the most effective ways to lessen the impact of an epidemic, by limiting the number of people an infected person comes into contact with before they show signs of the virus. We need to all do our part by making the daily choice to distance ourselves from each other as much as possible and choosing to stay connected using phone, video, and other social media.

To stay informed, residents are reminded to sign up for Code Red emergency notifications and Town News e-mail alerts. 

We will continue to post regular updates regarding the impacts of COVID-19 on the Town's home page:  https://www.town.northborough.ma.us/
