Board of Health Recap - Sep 2, 2020

Recap: The Franklin, MA Board of Health discussed and approved a tiered penalty structure for violations of COVID-19 emergency order to be effective Sep 8, 2020.

The interns presented the plan for distribution of the flu shots and potentially for the coronavirus vaccine. Workflow, materiel order sheets, workstation supply sheets, etc. It seems comprehensive. Copy not available other than via screen captures during the meeting. 

Some other items of business were reviewed briefly before the meeting closed with kudos to the interns for their work on the planning.


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.
