Coronavirus Disease Information

The Novel Coronavirus 2019, or Covid-19 is trending in every news outlet and on everyone's mind since the outbreak began in China a couple of months ago. It is important for residents to be well informed through reliable news and government outlets, and resist the fear that is sometimes spread via social media.

The Tyngsborough Fire Department and the Office of Emergency Management are in communication with our local, regional, and State planning partners on best practices for the unlikely encounter with a suspect case of Covid-19. The good news is that planning and training for the SARS Coronavirus some years ago, and our annual refreshers on preventing the spread of Seasonal Influenza have prepared us well.

All Disaster Response starts local, whether it is a natural disaster such as a hurricane, or a public health threat. Being confident in the preparedness of your local Public Safety and Public Health officials isn't enough. Each resident must do their part to keep informed and prepare themselves and their families. Below are links to resources that will help you better prepare.
