Board of Health - June 3, 2020 - Recap

As with most meetings in this pandemic period, I took my notes via Twitter during the meeting reporting in real-time via the virtual session.

The Twitter hashtag can be found online #boh0603 (one exception for #boh0602)

  • Board of Health underway, real time reporting in process. Meeting tweets tagged as #boh0603 Bridget Sweet board chair opens meeting and runs through the protocol and process for remote session
  • Appreciation of work being done by Cathleen and Ginny recognized, tough conversation in some cases with Franklin business and residents #boh0602
  • Mention of CDC webinars to post to web page, steps on re-opening after period of closure, Legionaries disease; next up recreation camp guidance, 30+ pages released this week, need time to work through #boh0603 requirements seem to be quite challenging
  • First discussion on beach under pandemic process; beach gate guards only there to check for Residency. Also asked to cut those from the budget this year. There are challenges with guidance provided (12' to towel off). What are the community needs? #boh0603
  • More discussion before decision needed, #boh0603 tabling for further discussion, could test for water quality and let residents take own risk.
  • Recreation looking to re-open July 13 need time to process the guidance, training, steps, etc. #boh0603. Next up restaurant and dining establishments, requirements issued by . Working on frequently asked questions, i.e. temp outdoor dining
  • Good question on rest room any guidance issued on those? Can they be opened? Already being cleaned weekly, some of them are used by sports and with the cancellations would not be opened at some fields. #boh0603 look in the frameworks
  • Mandatory training, did for food pantry and municipal staff, Uxbridge health prepared great slide deck, being Franklinized to share broadly. Recording in process to be developed. #boh0603
