Acting in Emergency Session this afternoon and under the Governor’s Order Suspending Certain Provisions of the Open Meeting Law, dated March 12, 2020, the Select Board (Chair Zullas, Vice Chair Collins, and Members Conlon and Wells), in order to facilitate Town Employees’ ability to receive necessary testing for suspected COVID-19 exposure, voted to waive all Town Employees’ co-payments for the following, until further notice:

  • COVID-19 test;
  • Doctors office, urgent care and emergency room services for COVID-19 testing; and
  • Telemedicine services (all telemedicine, including behavioral health). 

This emergency action was necessitated based on the insurance carriers’ requirement that the Town’s intentions be reported to the Massachusetts Division of Insurance by the close of business today.
