Covid 19 Information September 30, 2020

Dear Attleboro,

I’m sad to inform you that Attleboro has now been designated a “red city” by the state department of public health. What that means is that our rate per hundred thousand has exceeded what the state has determined is a good rate. Our rate is now 9.3 people per 100,000. Attleboro has about 45,000 people in the city. We have had 60 new cases over the last two weeks.

We cannot, will not and should not blame this on the firefighters who have recently tested positive. They are no more or less part of the overall number of people who contributed to our overall rate.

Either tomorrow or Friday, I am going to have a zoom meeting with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health about what the next steps are and what the expectations are for our city. That zoom meeting will include following people who I have invited to participate: the city health agent, the city nurse, the fire chief, the police chief, the city personnel office director, the school superintendent, the school nurse, and a chief doctor from Sturdy Hospital on behalf of the CEO.

As I learn more information about what are the expectations for us as a community from the state, I will let you know. Please stay patient as information is constantly evolving. There is no playbook. Thank you.

Paul Heroux
Mayor
