Information about COVID-19 is evolving- the Newtown Health District is closely following this information and our goal is to keep you informed as best we can. Everyday preventative actions such as good personal hygiene and social distancing are of the most importance and can help stop the spread of this illness and other respiratory viruses. We will continue to communicate through updates to our website as well as our usual public communication channels (the Newtown Bee, municipal websites, schools’ news venues as deemed appropriate).
