Thank you for your ongoing commitment to social distancing.

The Town of Sandwich COVID 19 Command Team met this afternoon to review the progress of the coronavirus in our region.  Cape Cod Healthcare has reported a confirmed case in Barnstable County.   The Command Team has been preparing for this situation since March 2nd.  This afternoon, we learned that the confirmed case is a resident of the Town of Sandwich, an adult male in his 60’s.  The Town responded immediately to follow required public health protocols.  All direct contacts have been notified.

This is a situation that will continue in communities across the Commonwealth. You can help slow the spread of this virus by maintaining social distancing, avoiding large groups and continuing with handwashing and observing good personal hygiene.

Please keep in mind that Town Meeting has been postponed and our schools are closed. Town Buildings are open and may offer some limited services.  As you plan to conduct Town business please call or use online services before choosing to come in person.

If you are not feeling well and have respiratory symptoms, please contact your healthcare provider by phone. If you have any questions or would like to speak with someone about the coronavirus please dial Massachusetts 2-1-1 where you will hear an automated menu of options and press 2-6 for coronavirus. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is providing staff to answer your questions.  2-1-1 works from both cell phones and landlines.
