Since Feb. 4 we have seen the world around us change rapidly due to COVID-19. Throughout, your kindness, support, trust, understanding and responsibility for one another have reaffirmed why Hopkinton is a special community. Over the past 10 weeks, Hopkinton has shared 31 updates with you and has kept you abreast of the changes and stressed our commitment to your safety and well-being, while ensuring the continued delivery of services.

Hopkinton was quick to set up a dedicated COVID-19 website with frequently updated resources and updates. We have offered a number of virtual office hours allowing residents to drop in and join a video chat with staff from our Town Manager’s Office, Town Clerk’s Office, Treasurer/Collector’s Office and Principal Planner’s Office. Hopkinton now has an online chat system, accessible from our website pages, to allow for chat with live representatives from our Treasurer/Collector’s Office, Assessor’s Office and Town Clerk’s Office, with DPW coming online soon! You’ve already chatted with us over 130 times and given us a 98 percent satisfaction rating! Our commitment to continuing to offer our residents methods to engage with us remains strong. While our buildings are physically closed, we are open for business. You’ve visited our Community Impact Dashboard​ over 35,000 times!

As of 11 a.m. on May 15, Hopkinton’s Health Depa​rtment is reporting 105 total ​confirmed COVID-19 cases; 27 of those cases are active, with 67 recoveries and 11 deaths. You can see historical tracking and updates on ​Hopkinton’s Community Impact Dashboard.

In the 11 days from May 3 through 14, Hopkinton reported only two new cases of COVID-19. During this same time period, Hopkinton reported 42 recoveries, which brings our active case count to the lowest it’s been since April 19. This is promising news, and does reflect the overall trend in Massachusetts in recent days. As we move forward and prepare to enter Phase 1 of ​Governor Baker’s Four-Phase Approach to Reopening Massachusetts​, it’s important to continue to wear your face covering when appropriate and practice social distancing, frequent hand washing and good hygiene. While we are trending in the right direction, we aren’t yet out of the woods.

This update differs from our historical format. Below you will find a collection of previously shared links that may be helpful:
