Covid-19 Assistance Worthington

WORTHINGTON — The town has received $2,400 to support prevention and monitoring efforts related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The money is coming from $250,000 of state funding from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission.

The money will help to provide the services of a shared public health nurse who will be working closely with the Worthington Board of Health.
