Three confirmed cases of the Coronavirus have been identified in North Attleborough, according to the town web site.
On the Town of North Attleborough site, a page has been established to update the public on developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the closing of schools and town departments, news from the governor’s offices, and cases of the virus confirmed in town. This last item is updated on a daily basis, under those cases that are confirmed.
A confirmed case or positive case means that a specimen was tested and confirmed by the CDC for COVID-19.
As of March 18, the total cases in Massachusetts is 218, two of which are in Bristol County, which North Attleborough is a part of.
The public is strongly encouraged to avoid unnecessary travel for a 15-day period to limit the number of new cases. This gives medical professionals time to address those already confirmed to have the virus and complete testing.
Previously, the town had six cases being monitored, which were those who had traveled to areas that had a Level 3 Travel Notice. That number is now down to one.
