COVID-19 INFORMATION Archive (scroll down for ALL information)

Our local vaccination rate is higher than generally reported in the media and on mass.gov. They are all using outdated census numbers. If current census figures are used, 53.7% of eligible Hardwick residents have been fully vaccinated, and another 6% of residents have had one dose of the vaccine as of October 1.

If you are looking for current information, rely on the Center for Disease Control and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health websites, rather than television news. If you are not fully vaccinated, when you are out and about (post office, convenience store, gas station, rail trails, etc.) please continue to wear a MASK and maintain SOCIAL DISTANCING. If you are concerned about symptoms you may have, contact your Primary Care provider first. Massachusetts is trying to slow the spread by identifying as many people as possible who may have been in contact with people who have confirmed cases of COVID-19. If you receive a phone call from area codes 833 or 857 with questions about contact tracing, take the call. Check back here and Facebook page for updates as we receive them.
