Below is an announcement from the Town of Billerica:
BILLERICA, MA — The Town was informed this afternoon of the first two positive cases of COVID-19 in Billerica. These cases are a husband and wife living in the community. Upon this notification, the Billerica Board of Health followed protocols established by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
These protocols included an investigation into those people identified as “close contacts” of the individuals who tested positive. Anyone identified as a “close contact” has already been notified by the Billerica Board of Health, and has been requested to self-quarantine for a period of fourteen days. Unless you have been contacted by the Billerica Board of Health, it is not likely that you have had exposure to these individuals.
The Town continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 within the community and will take appropriate actions as directed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to mitigate the spread of the virus. The Town is also advising residents to do your part and follow the CDC guidelines by staying home if you are sick, continue practicing social distancing (staying 6 feet away from others when possible), and check in on others that may need assistance during this time.
Engage with your friend online and do your part to reduce the spread of Coronavirus.
