UPDATED JUNE 24, 2021:
The State of Emergency declared by Governor Baker related to the COVID-19 pandemic was rescinded effective June 15, 2021.
Over the 15 months that the SOE existed the Town of Athol followed the guidance and directives issued by the Governor and Mass. Dept. of Public Health and worked locally to establish a VAX task force that facilitated a local vaccination clinic at the Senior Center which ultimately completed over 3,800 injections of either the Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson vaccine. This local clinic fully vaccinated over 2,000 people with roughly 55 percent from Athol, 19 percent from Orange and the rest from throughout the greater region.
If you have not been vaccinated there are many options that still remain. For quick access to a listing of vaccination sites click HERE. The Athol Board of Health Facebook page will continue to offer updates as needed by clicking HERE.
Finally, I offer a sincere THANK YOU to the citizens of Athol for your perseverance during these challenging times and to our staff and many volunteers who continued to diligently serve the public despite the increased obstacles. AspireAthol!
- Shaun A. Suhoski, Town Manager
