New Year’s Message from the Board of Health

FireworksHappy New Year 2021

The New Year brings us hope – hope to get our lives back to normal, but each of us still have important work to do, for ourselves and for our community.

We must continue to wear a mask, maintain social distancing, wash our hands, and follow the gathering guidance. We must keep our families and our community safe. Our first responders, hospitals, doctors and nurses need your help and are counting on you to take these small steps to ring in a healthy New Year for us all!

The only way back to normal is through herd immunity. Herd immunity means almost ALL of us need to get a vaccine when it is available! More than ever in history, we will need to count on every member of our community, no matter the size. A healthy planet starts here, and it starts with you!

COVID-19 Vaccine Roll Out

The first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have arrived and are being distributed to hospitals for administration to clinical and non-clinical health care providers. Please visit the Commonwealth’s dedicated vaccine webpage for more information about when you can receive the vaccine.

Don’t Wait/Don’t Hesitate

As COVID-19 cases rise in the United States, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and within Hampshire County, the hesitation to seek treatment for health emergencies that occurred in the spring is re-emerging. The Southampton Fire/EMS Department would like to remind everyone that heart attacks, strokes, and other acute medical emergencies don’t take a vacation because of the pandemic. Delaying treatment can lead to worsening of the event, and even death. Call the Southampton Fire/EMS Department at 413-527-1700 if you have questions, or 911 in an emergency.

Best wishes for a safe and healthy New Year!

Southampton Community Engagement Survey Report

Greetings Southampton Residents,

The Master Plan Implementation Committee (MPIC) presents the initial report of the Community Engagement Survey results. We were pleased to have 896 responses, about a 20% return of registered voters in town. This report shows the responses per question, and the graphs demonstrate preferences in an easy-to-read way. In those instances where additional comments were possible, we have also provided an illustrative sample of those responses, while trying to avoid duplication. A presentation of the results will be made at an up-coming Select Board meeting and a more complete narrative report, updating the 2013 Master Plan should be completed by mid-December. A sincere thanks to all who took time to share their views and participate in the survey.

-Chris Fowles, MPIC Chair
