Tomorrow is Federal Census Day. The Census is very important to Kingston! The results will determine how much federal funding Kingston receives for public services. This means money for things like schools, roads and bridges, fire and police departments, hospitals and more. It also determines how many seats we get in Congress. You can fill out the 2020 Federal Census at this link: https://ift.tt/39QXu80 Or call 844-330-2020 to respond by phone. Stand up and be counted!

Today’s update.

Josh For Kingston
This afternoon the Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced that there were 32 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Plymouth County. This represents an increase from 25 confirmed cases yesterday.

At this time, Kingston’s Public Safety Officers and Health Agent have not been made aware of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Town of Kingston.

Countless residents have reached out over the last week by phone, by email, and on social media, looking for ways to help their neighbors. In this time of great need, staying home and drastically limiting your social interactions with others, will help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and possibly save lives. I cannot think of a greater way to be of service to one’s neighbor.

Please read today’s update linked below for details regarding new guidance from the Baker administration requiring all non-essential businesses in the state to operate remotely, closing their physical workplaces and facilities to workers, customers and the public, as well as Baker’s direction to the state’s Department of Public Health to issue a stay-at-home advisory to the residents of Massachusetts.

This afternoon the Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced that there were 20 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Plymouth County. An increase from 11 confirmed cases yesterday. At this time, Kingston’s Public Safety Officers and Health Agent have not been made aware of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Town of Kingston.

Please monitor www.kingstonmass.org for daily news from Kingston’s Emergency Management Team.

Kingston’s Emergency Management Team met today to discuss the Town’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have heard from all corners of the community from residents offering their time and resources to support Kingston residents who are in need. At this point in time, we’re confident that we can safely and responsibly direct those intentions to the individuals below:

– The Kingston Fire Department currently has supplies of personal protective gear (PPE) for their staff, however they are forecasting a need for additional PPE in the weeks to come. If you have unused PPE such as (Tyvek suits or similar, N95 respirator masks, and medical grade hospital gloves) that may be of use to Kingston’s first responders, please contact Mark Douglass or Adam Hatch at 781-585-0532. If your items meet the standards of Kingston’s Fire and EMS workers, they will gladly accept them.

– The Restoration Community Church (RCC) in Kingston has a Board of Health certified food pantry that serves 15 community members 3-4 meals per week. Due to the closure of other area pantries, there is additional pressure on the RCC from those who typically receive food elsewhere. Their shelves are beginning to run dry. If you would like to make a donation of non-perishable food items, please contact Pastor Eric Greer at 781-361-9108.
