Coronavirus Information

The Board of Health continues to monitor the local, national and global situation of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and is prepared to support our community.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has emphasized that the risk to our communities remains low.  It is important to note that individuals are more likely to be exposed to common cold and/or seasonal flu than COVID-19.

Whitman-Hanson Regional School District is providing regular updates to families. These updates are also available on the district website.

This public health concern is evolving. Residents can expect that information and recommendations may change. The Board of Health will provide updates as needed.

Residents are encouraged to sign up to receive local information about COVID-19 from the following sources:
