Town officials continue to monitor the spread of the novel coronavirus and coordinate regionally to make the best decisions for the safety of all our residents. We understand some of these actions may require some sacrifice on the part of Falmouth residents and visitors. Please know that we do not make these decisions lightly. Taking action now is doing our part to slow the spread of the virus, reduce the number of people infected, and to avoid overwhelming our health care system. Delaying action, or failing to act, could increase the number of Falmouth residents and visitors facing life-threatening illness.
