Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a photo and video of the day.
Hopkinton High School Principal Evan Bishop emailed the HHS community Thursday to announce that a Keefe Tech student from Hopkinton has died. Bishop indicated that his staff was made aware of the student’s death by the Keefe Tech administration Thursday morning. He did not share the name of the student “out of respect for the family.”
Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update shows a record number of cases in town — more than 225 — including more than 100 in the previous 48 hours. Residents now are advised to wear a face covering when indoors, regardless of vaccination status, and all town board and committee meetings are to be held remotely.
