Director of Public Health, Christopher Michaud announced the launch of a new website that will provide the community with the latest information, news, and resources regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a recent press release, the new website, DartmouthCovid19.com, will serve as a resource for residents, visitors, and business owners to receive Board of Health updates as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop and the Commonwealth continues through its vaccine distribution timeline.

  • Important information related to COVID-19, including state and federal guidelines;
  • The latest public health guidance regarding prevention and quarantining;
  • Resources for residents, including information from the Centers for Disease
  • Control and Prevention and mental health resources;
  • A news blog;
  • Contact information for the Town of Dartmouth and a link to the town's official website.

“We are pleased to announce the launch of this news blog as a valuable way for our residents to stay informed during this time, especially as the state continues through its vaccination rollout," Michaud said. “I encourage residents to subscribe to receive alerts from the blog and to check back often for updates.”
