COVID-19 Joint Board Meeting, 11/19/20

It was a chance for several key boards to coordinate messages and get on the same proverbial page. The Select Board hosted members of the School Committee, Finance Committee, Council on Aging, Park and Recreation Commission, Library Trustees and (of course) the Board of Health to take a look at the current pandemic landscape. Hearing reports that stressed proper messaging, concern around the holidays, and making sure everything possible is being done to keep the schools open, those present had a chance to ask questions and share perspectives from their organizations. One of the recurring themes was enforcement and what could be done to ensure Needham’s residents and visitors followed state guidelines. The meeting ran approximately ninety minutes and was carried live on the Needham Municipal Channel and HD Channel.
