Residents Urged to be Vigilant as Cases Rise and Holidays Approach — Town Manager Michael Dutton and Health Agent Eric Badger report that the Town of Bridgewater has seen a rise in positive COVID-19 cases recently, resulting in an increased risk designation from the Commonwealth.
Town Manager Michael Dutton and Bridgewater Council on Aging (COA) Director Emily Williams are pleased to share with the Bridgewater senior community a video produced with safety information from Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz.
Today, the Baker-Polito Administration announced a series of targeted measures to disrupt the increasing trend of new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. Governor Charlie Baker announced these changes at a time where public health data has indicated that cases are rising, with cases up by 278% and hospitalizations up by 145% since Labor Day. These measures are meant to disrupt rising trends now, so the Commonwealth can keep the economy and schools open for residents and to prevent the need to roll back to Phase I or Phase II of the reopening plan.
Town Manager Michael Dutton and Health Agent Eric Badger are urging residents and college students to follow COVID-19 prevention guidance, after an uptick in positive cases at Bridgewater State University has pushed the town into a red “high-risk” designation by state health officials.
