The Newton City Council will meet fully remotely for the health and safety of Councilors and the public during the Massachusetts Covid-19 State of Emergency.
Many of you have reached out this week with your questions and concerns about COVID-19.
The Newton Health and Human Services Department has developed a Frequently Asked Questions section on the COVID-19 webpage. It can be found by scrolling to the bottom here: www.newtonma.gov/covid19. It includes questions and answers about travel, what to do if you think you may have symptoms, and other Newton specific information. We plan to update this resource as we hear more from you about what information you need.
