Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19, has been in the news a lot lately, and we know many people are worried about the potential impacts to our community. We are paying close attention to the information that comes out of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

As of March 2, 2020, all town departments and schools are operating on a regular schedule. As always, if you or your child is sick, please stay home to avoid the spread of cold and flu germs.

We know that there’s a lot of information out there and some of it is misleading. We are going to use this page as a resource to provide the citizens of Salisbury with accurate and legitimate sources of information.

Below are some basic facts from the CDC followed by helpful linkes to more resources. Additionally, you'll find periodic updates on the left hand side of this page under the "Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates" link:

How does COVID-19 spread?

Right now it’s thought that COVID-19 spreads from person-to-person contact, between people who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet).

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure, and include fever, shortness of breath and cough.

What are the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19?

Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick, and if you are sick you should stay home if at all possible. Avoid touching your face, and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces regularly. Facemasks are not needed if you are not sick.

How many cases of COVID-19 are there in the United States?

The CDC is regularly updating their page with information about how many cases have been confirmed. The Massachusetts Board of Health is updating their website with information about confirmed cases in Massachusetts.
