Milford BOH Issues Citations for 200-Person Party
  

The Milford Board of Health issued $1,500 in three citations in response to the 200-person party along Franklin Street in Milford on Saturday August 22, 2020.

During a pandemic, hosting and attending large gatherings threatens the public’s health and harms the community. The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, is a highly contagious virus, and potentially fatal for some persons. Events of this type have been traced to transmission of COVID-19 among attendees.

While the Milford Police Department responded to a call about this gathering, they witnessed three (3) violations of Governor Baker’s COVID-19 Order No. 46, including infringements of:

social distancing regulations,

mask and face covering regulations, and

the outdoor gathering limit of fifty (50) persons.

Governor Baker’s COVID-19 Order No. 46 permits issuing $500 per violation by local boards of health and other municipal offices. Citations are civil fines, administered as non-criminal dispositions for violations of local by-laws, rules, or regulations.
