Board of Health issues COVID-19 Update

On July 19, Dover's Board of Health issued an update on the current COVID-19 situation. Though there haven't been any new cases in the last two weeks, Dover's Board of Health is urging residents to continue taking precautions to prevent any new surges.

Visitors from out of state are asked to quarantine for 14 days immediately after arriving as part of the travel to Massachusetts directive. Travelers exempt from this requirment include those coming from Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, and New Jersey.

Those who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 are asked to contact their primary care providers to arrange a test. The Dover Public Health nurse will contact individuals should their test come back positive to help arrange quarantine and help with receiving supplies and groceries if needed.

The update also included a change for town-wide COVID-19 alerts. Starting in July, email updates were automatically transferred to the town's automatic notification system. Those who wish to sign up can do so here.
