CITY RESPONSE

At this time, the majority of the cases of COVID-19 are related to a single cluster associated with a conference at a hotel in Boston, MA. However, because of the extent of national and international travel related to Universities and technological companies in Massachusetts, the risk of additional travel-related introductions, and community transmission within large local meetings/conferences, of COVID-19 is increased.
