North Adams Health Board to Caution Eateries Over Virus Cases
The Board of Health on Tuesday rejected the idea of putting further restrictions on local eateries despite a cluster of positive COVID-19 cases linked to restaurants.
At least six cases — two employees and four patrons — were recently traced to a single private club.
"We are seeing, at least in North Adams we are seeing, several of our cases come from restaurants, and we are not seeing anything from museums, gyms, retail," said Health Director Heather DeMarsico told the Board of Health on Tuesday. "
There are currently 50 active cases of the novel coronavirus in the city but DeMarsico estimated there were about seven or eight that have not been recorded in the state's Maven system. North Adams has hit something of a plateau, she said, with cases falling off as new ones are recorded.
The city has recorded 10 positive cases over the past two weeks but none in the last few days.
