As we are all aware, Governor Charles Baker continues to update in Massachusetts to support the state’s response to Coronavirus. People should use their own judgment if they wish to attend meetings and events where there will be crowds. If you are ill or symptomatic please do not attend. The Town can make no assurance of safety or assistance in preventing the transmission of illness.

Phillipston's Board of Health/ Phillipston Emergency Management continues to monitor the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH). The public can expect that recommendations may change, and Board of Health/ Phillipston Emergency Management will provide updates as needed.
