[ARCHIVED] Braintree Health Department Update - June 23, 2020

Town of Braintree Seal

It is with great sadness that Mayor Kokoros reports 25 additional deaths in Braintree due to COVID-19. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families as well as to all who are suffering from the effects of this pandemic.

The 25 additional deaths occurred between May 1, 2020 and June 23, 2020. Due to an unintentional oversight in reporting the town was not notified of these deaths when they occurred.

June 23, 2020

New Cases: 0

Total Cases: 887

Total Deaths: 115

Please be mindful of the following steps you can take to help prevent the transmission of any respiratory infection, including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes or mouth.
  • Frequently clean commonly touched surfaces, including electronics, door knobs and countertops.
  • Avoid sharing food utensils, containers and other personal items.
  • Practice “social distancing” by maintaining a distance of 6 feet from others.
  • Stay home from work if you are sick.
  • Practice proper cough etiquette. Cover your mouth or nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, throw the tissue away and wash or sanitize your hands. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow/upper sleeve.

Please direct any inquiries to Jean McGinty, Public Health Nurse at 781-794-8094 or Marybeth McGrath, Director of Health at 781-794-8095.
