Coronavirus Impact Update

coronavirus_announcement

As you know, a State of National Emergency and a Declaration of Public Health and Civil Preparedness Emergency have been declared throughout the United States.  

We urge you, during this time, to act responsibly and do your part to prevent the transmission of the virus.  

The Town of Westbrook is asking residents to take social distancing very seriously. Through distancing we will slow the spread of COVID-19

The sick among us will be treated, the spread of the virus will slow, and we will reach a point where recoveries outnumber new cases.

Please continue to adhere to the established protocols (hand washing, avoid shaking hands, stay home if you are sick, etc.) that are on the Director of Health’s website here: Visit_Website_button

Please Note The Following:

  • School may be out, but this is absolutely not the time for parties, sleep-overs, or play-dates, no matter the size.  Parents play a crucial role in their child’s whereabouts and are advised to keep their children home. 
  • People may go outside to recreate, but do not congregate with others and refrain from visiting areas where people may have recently congregated such as playgrounds.
  • Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (cell phones, remote controls).
  • If you do not have to go out, stay home.  If possible, stay home from work.
  • If you are over 60 or have a serious underlying health condition, stay home and away from people.
  • If someone in your household is sick with a fever, cough or shortness of breath, please self-isolate for 14 days and contact your physician.  Do not rush to the Emergency Room.
  • Only travel if it is essential (seeking medical care or food). 

The Westbrook community is a family.  We are connected and know that your health, safety and well-being are our primary objectives. 

Together we can manage these challenging times as a community.
