Message from the Board of Health

State face mask graphic

From the Hubbardston Board of Health -

The Hubbardston Board of Health wants to thank all the town's children and adults for helping to keep our current number of COVID-19 case number to one for the last 4 weeks.

We also want to stress that it is not yet time to stop doing the safe distancing that we have all been doing. We so want to stop following these state rules, but here's the deal: we also don't ever want to be accused of causing someone's sickness or death because we could not simply keep the proper distance, or wear a mask or bandanna. We hope that you share this belief too.

The Governor's Order began Wednesday, May 6th, and requires that all Hubbardston residents wear a face covering whenever they are outside of their homes and in a situation where social distancing is not possible.

Here are some tips from the State about face masks:

  • A face covering can include anything that covers your nose and mouth, including dust masks, scarves and bandanas.
  • Do not use health care worker masks, such as the N95 masks - those should be preserved for healthcare workers.
  • It is important that you wear these face coverings or masks in situations where it is difficult to maintain a social distance of six feet from others. For example, in a pharmacy or grocery store.
