Upton Board of Health Prohibits use of Playgrounds and Courts

In an effort to mitigate further spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Board voted to post signage and lock gates to the entrances of all playgrounds and courts prohibiting their use. Parks can only be used for passive recreation such as walking.

These prohibitions do not include the Upton State Forest and the community garden at Stephan’s Farm. The Land Stewardship Committee has developed safe practice guidelines for the use of the Stephan’s Farm community garden for this year’s growing season. For questions please contact the Town Manager at 508.529.6901 or dbrindisi@uptonma.gov.

The Board of Health encourages the use of cloth face masks and asks the community to maintain the appropriate 6 feet of social distancing when in public, per the CDC guidance.
