NORWOOD — The Town of Norwood seeks to provide updates to residents on a continuous basis.
Board of Selectmen Chairman Paul A. Bishop, General Manager Tony Mazzucco, Superintendent David Thomson and Health Director Sigalle Reiss would like to provide an update about new content on the town’s website and remind people of what will be open next week as the weekend winds down.
Town officials would like to reiterate that all town offices, including Town Hall, and all Norwood Public Schools will open under normal operating hours on Monday and will remain open throughout the week.
Health Director Reiss posted a public service announcement (PSA) video on the town’s website assuring residents that it is okay to go about your normal routines in town and that the risk level of contracting novel coronavirus (COVID-19) still remains low for townspeople and all Massachusetts residents.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health recommends that residents continue with good hygiene practices including:
- Practice good hand hygiene! Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds including under your fingernails. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol content) can be used when soap and water are not available.
- Keep your hands away from your face.
- Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing and coughing with a tissue and discard it immediately. Cough into the sleeve over your elbow instead of your hand. Wash your hands often when coughing and sneezing.
- Stay away from people who are sick and stay home when you are sick.
