FRAMINGHAM – Mayor Yvonne Spicer stopped by Seabra Foods on Route 135 in Framingham this morning, to talk to the COVID-19 outreach team from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The outreach team was comprised of Framingham and Fitchburg individuals who spoke Spanish and Portuguese. They had set up a table outside of the supermarket and was handing out multilingual flyers, free masks, and providing hand sanitizers for shoppers before and after they visited the store.
This was the first stop by the outreach team this weekend and the first day the Baker-Polito administration had begun providing support for the City of Framingham. For the complete schedule click here.
Framingham is one of 13 high-risk or “red communities” for the coronavirus.
Gov. Charlie Baker said Framingham is one of six communities in Massachusetts which has a “dangerously high transmission rate” for the virus.
Mayor Spicer did an interview with a Boston TV station when she stopped by the outreach table.
