Mayor Sarno states, “Yesterday’s COVID-19 daily update infection numbers from HHS Commissioner Helen Caulton-Harris of 154, and 111 cases for the Tuesday, September 14th are very alarming and scary. These are numbers we were seeing during the height of COVID-19. Baystate Medical Center is being over-run by COVID-19 patients, the super majority being unvaccinated. Baystate Medical is being taxed and over extended creating a dangerous scenario of accessibility to medical services. With that, I again strong urge and encourage our residents to mask-up and get the Vax shot ASAP! We are at a critical stage here – we either take a step forward or end up taking two steps back. Make this about the overall good of everyone’s public health – not politics. We need to be united, not divided to defeat this enemy. Trust the facts – get the Vax!”
