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 video or two to brighten your morning.
The Hopkinton Police Department announced Sunday evening that it had located an elderly man who had not returned home from a walk earlier in the day. The 88-year-old was found at approximately 6:47 p.m. “in a swampy area of town off of Linden Street, by a canine unit,” the HPD stated. He was transported to UMass Memorial Hospital in Worcester.
The Hopkinton exits off Interstate 495 are to be renumbered in the next few weeks. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced on May 12 that the exits are in the next group to receive new signage as part of the ongoing program that began last fall. Hopkinton’s new exit number will be 50.
Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update shows 14 active cases in town and includes information about the updated rules for masks and social distancing as well as vaccines for children as young as 12.
In this week’s Schools Notebook, a number of Hopkinton High School students won awards at the Massachusetts Science & Engineering Fair, and the HHS Honors Art Exhibition is underway.
Town meetings tonight include the Board of Health (5:30), Planning Board (7) and Woodville Historic District Commission (7).
