COVID-19 in Salem

EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER (EOC)

Salem Fire Chief Larry Best is also the director of Salem’s Emergency Operations Center Team (EOC). He and other town officials were presenting a report most Monday evenings at 7:00, as part of the Selectboard meeting. That has been discontinued.

The people of Salem were looking for answers to questions about COVID-19. I am disappointed that there hasn’t been more information from Salem’s elected officials. That’s why I started my COVID-19 daily updates. When I started this in early April, I never imagined it would last this long, but as long as people are wanting this info, I’ll try to keep providing it.

If you can’t answers, I can try to help.

I’ll be on the Salem ballot for State Rep (Primary: Sept 8; General election: November 3).
