BROOKLINE — Health Commissioner Dr. Swannie Jett announces that the Brookline Department of Public Health, in consultation with the town Advisory Council on Public Health, has ended the suspension on organized sports in town.
The suspension, which had been in place since earlier this month, is lifted effective immediately. It had impacted school sports and other non-school organized sports.
The decision is the result of key indicators that suggest the overall incidence of COVID-19 in Brookline is declining after reaching an all-time high in late December and early January.
“We will continue to closely monitor the incidence rate of COVID-19 cases in our community,” Dr. Jett said. “I appreciate the patience, flexibility and understanding of everyone in town as we navigate this pandemic and I implore everyone to continue doing all they can to limit the spread of the coronavirus.”
