FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Board of Health held a meeting tonight, January 11, and no vote was taken on a mask mandate.
Mayor Charlie Sisitsky attended the meeting and listened to feedback from residents and business owners on the potential for a mask mandate in the City of framingham, after more than 1,300 cases of OVID-19 were reported within a 7-day period.
The City’s Health Director Alex DePalo had no opinion on the matter during the meeting.
Currently, there are 3 member of the Framingham Board of Health.
Only two were in attendance – chair Dr. David Moore and new member Alexandra Rubin.
Both seemed in favor of a temporary mask mandate during this surge, but did not make a motion or take a vote during the meeting.
Mayor Sisitsky said he took everything he heard at the meeting under advisement.
The majority of speakers – more than 75% – wanted a mask mandate in the City.
The Mayor could issue an order for a mask mandate without the Board of Health, and that could come as soon as Wednesday, January 12.
