Closures and Important Information (updated April 10)

This page will be updated with the latest important information released by the Wayland Department of Public Health. Check back for updates.

As of April 9, 2020

The Board of Health highly recommends that you wear a facial covering (mask, scarf, or bandana) when leaving your home to go to areas where you may encounter other individuals, especially indoors (shopping areas).

The Board of Health strongly encourages the continued practice of social distancing when you are at stores or places where you may encounter other individuals. Social distancing means that you maintain a distance of 6 feet from other people. By maintaining social distancing, you can reduce the chance that you come into contact with symptomatic and asymptomatic people who may be carrying the virus.

Please check on your friends and neighbors with a telephone call. You should refrain from interacting in person with anyone who does not live within your household.

All residents are urged to evaluate their own health and monitor symptoms of sickness. If you are feeling any symptoms of COVID-19, please contact the Wayland Health Department’s Coronavirus Hotline (508-358-6805) and your primary care physician for guidance. This is extremely important. The Health Department maintains patient confidentiality on all health matters.

If you or anyone in your family has any symptoms of illness, please stay quarantined at home until you are feeling better and follow up with your primary care physician as needed.

The Town of Wayland will also provide general help for residents who need help obtaining basic and important life necessities such as food or medication. If you need help obtaining these items, please call 508-358-7701
