Acushnet Fire Chief Gallagher: “This is not over yet. Remain vigilant.”
“This past Friday and Saturday we tested 106 individuals. With all testing completed, one person was found to be positive. That is a percentage positivity rate of less than 1%.
“The virus is still here. One Acushnet resident received the news this morning that none of us want to get. We wish for them a speedy recovery.
“With certain restrictions easing, please keep in mind that this is not yet over. Remain vigilant.
“This past January we would test hundreds of people on Fridays and Saturdays and make dozens of phone calls on Sunday morning. That is never easy. Let’s hope today’s one call is followed by no Sunday morning calls soon.”- Kevin Gallagher.
