Late Wednesday, March 18th, the Hudson Board of Health was informed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) about a Hudson resident with a confirmed positive test result for COVID-19. The resident, after recent travel, was tested at a local hospital and is at home recovering. Family members are at home in quarantine. Those potentially exposed to the newly diagnosed resident have been traced and contacted.
The Hudson Health Department is working with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and is managing this case, and any future cases, per Massachusetts Department of Public Health recommendations.
As of March 17, 2020, there are 218 confirmed cases in Massachusetts with 89 confirmed cases in Middlesex County. Hudson’s neighbor, Marlborough, announced last week that it had a case of COVID19 within its boarders.
