FM #224 Health Director Cathleen Liberty on the coronavirus (audio)

FM #224 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 224 in the series.

Town of Franklin Health Director Cathleen Liberty took some time from her schedule to sit and talk about the coronavirus and the steps to take to respond to it. 

Don’t panic, she says: “The Board of Health recommendation is to go about your normal life, however, if you are showing any type of symptoms, stay home, stay away from people.”

The Coronavirus portal on the Town page is being updated regularly as information from the CDC and MA Dept of Public Health is available.

What you won’t find there are any numbers on current cases, spending time and effort to update those when the situation is so dynamic is not a good use of time.

What you will find there is accurate and directly from the CDC, the MA Dept of Public Health, etc.

The audio segment runs about 10 minutes, so let’s listen in to my discussion with Town of Franklin Health Director Cathleen Liberty.
