Coronavirus Information

In our continued efforts to outreach to our residents and local businesses about the ever evolving situation of the coronavirus pandemic, the Mansfield Public Health Department has established this Coronavirus Information page. You’ll find up to date information, website links, and contact information from the Town’s COVID-19 Task Force, the Health Department, Town Administration and the School Department.

Update October 22, 2020

The following statistics are for Mansfield residents only.

  • Total persons currently positive and under isolation in Mansfield: 18
  • Total persons testing positive in Mansfield since the beginning: 250
  • Total persons recovered: 217
  • Total persons deceased: 15
  • Community Designation Level: Yellow

At this point, local tracking is transitioning to the state-run Community Tracing Collaborative (CTC) and it is unknown how many residents are self-quarantining. 

Answer the call and help stop the spread of COVID-19

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, along with Partners In Health, has created the COVID-19 Community Tracing Collaborative. The program focuses on reaching out to the contacts of confirmed positive COVID-19 patients to help others who have been potentially exposed to the virus. When the MA COVID Team calls, you can do your part by answering the phone and providing helpful information that will help flatten and reduce the curve in Massachusetts. Phone calls will use the prefix 833 and 857 and your phone will say the call is from “MA COVID Team.” Calls will be made daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

COVID-19 Task Force

The Mansfield Town Manager has established a COVID-19 Task Force where the central goal and mission is to provide a balance in which the Town can continue to provide essential services to the public, while trying to prevent and mitigate the spread of the virus.  The task force is comprised of Town Manager Kevin Dumas, Assistant Town Manager Barry LaCasse, Fire Chief Justin Desrosiers, Chief of Police Ron Sellon, Health Agent Amy Donovan-Palmer, School Director of Health Services Christine Dooling, Superintendent of Schools Teresa Murphy, and Director of Human Resources Jocelyn LeMaire. 

Questions about Coronavirus?

If you have specific question you need to ask, the Mass 211 call center is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Mass 211 is an easy to remember telephone number that connects callers to information about critical health and human services available in their community. It serves as a resource for finding government benefits and services, nonprofit organizations, support groups, volunteer opportunities, donation programs, and other local resources. Always a confidential call, Mass 211 maintains the integrity of the 9-1-1 system saving that vital community resource for life and death emergencies.

COVID-19 Public Resources Map 

MEMA, together with MA VOAD and other partners, has developed a COVID-19 Public Resources Map showing the location of resources available to the public, such as food banks, houses of worship, and Project Bread site locations. Please note that this map is not inclusive of all resources, and is only as accurate as the information that has been provided to MEMA.

Massachusetts COVID-19 Response Dashboard

MEMA has developed and maintains a public-facing COVID-19 ArcGIS Online dashboard, available here. This dashboard is continuously updated and captures information about current COVID 19 case counts, cases by age, cases by county, hospital status, hospital bed status, death tolls, and deaths by age. Users should refresh the dashboard on a daily basis as enhancements are continuously being added.
