ACTIVE COVID-19 CASE UPDATE: As of May 2, 2020, MDPH has reported to the Town of Randolph: New Cases Today: 13, Total Active Cases: 440. Total Recovered: 157. Total Deaths: 29.

FACE COVERING OR MASK MUST BE WORN IN STORES: Today, Governor Baker made face coverings required state-wide.  Any person entering any business in Randolph, such as a grocery store, pharmacy, take-out food, hardware store and the like must wear a cloth face covering, such as a fabric mask, scarf or bandana, over their nose and mouth. Please save medical masks for health care use and first responders.

If you cough or sneeze, the mask can catch those respiratory droplets so they don't land on other people or surfaces. "So it's not going to protect you, but it is going to protect your neighbor," says Dr. Daniel Griffin at Columbia University, an expert on infectious diseases. "If your neighbor is wearing a mask and the same thing happens, they're going to protect you."

STATE EXTENDS BUSINESS CLOSURES, STAY AT HOME ADVISORY TO May 18:  Governor Baker has extended the state order closing non-essential businesses and advising residents to stay home until May 18th.  Any social gatherings must remain under 10 people.  Remember, you must wear a face covering while entering any business in Randolph.  Continue to physical distance at 6 feet and wash your hands frequently.
