Fall River sees first positive case of COVID-19



The City of Fall River was informed that a resident has tested positive for COVID-19. The resident is now isolated. Those potentially exposed to the diagnosed resident have been traced and contacted, according to a release sent by Mayor Coogan’s Office. Those individuals are now in quarantine.

Resources for COVID-19 Information:

Behavioral Health: It is important that residents prioritize their mental health during the COVID-19 outbreak. Residents experiencing anxiety, depression, or need emotional support can call 211 to be connected to behavioral health resources.

Massachusetts 2-1-1 provides residents with real time COVID-19 information. Residents with questions regarding COVID-19 should call 2-1-1.

• MA 2-1-1 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week
• Information is available in over 150 languages
• All calls are confidential

According to Mayor Coogan, the City of Fall River fields, courts, and open spaces are open for passive use only – no team sports. City playgrounds and play structures will continue to be closed. These closures and restrictions will be monitored and enforced by the Fall River Police Department.

Coogan stated earlier this week that these restrictions have been put into effect in order to protect the health of the community. Mayor Coogan continues to urge residents to do the following:

Practice social distancing. This means keeping 6ft between individuals and avoid shaking hands and hugging

Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

Cover your cough and sneezes. Throw tissues away and clean your hands afterwards.

Stay home when you are sick

Avoid contact with individuals who are sick

“It is critical that we work together as a community during these unprecedented times. We all must take these public health measures seriously as these measures can save lives. Please continue to monitor the City’s website for daily updates regarding COVID-19 and our community.”

    Let’s thank the Chinese for the Wuhan Corona Virus. This is a bio-weapon and it’s main target are military aged men of the world’s strongest military forces. Patriots please stay vigilant because I foresee our enemy’s from China
    bringing war to Americas shores. Keeping our health will be the key to hanging on to our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. God be our Guide…

      Keep your conspiracy nonsense to yourself. Nobody outside your puny group actually takes your ideas seriously. Go back to your nuclear anti-chemtrail bunker, put on your 5G-blocking tin-foil hat, and don’t ever come back out. We don’t need you idiots making things worse.

      Stop this nonsense. You are endangering my life and many others. Science rules and cooperation between nations is essential in stopping this virus. We have much to learn from China and their handling of the virus. They have had no new cases in 3 days. You need to read real news or books that inform rather than incite.

    It’s easy to say stay home if your sick. I’ve bedn going to work because I need to buy groceries and pay my rent. I am out of sick time. I’ve been diagnosed with pneumonia but can’t afford to stay home. It’s real easy to say stay home but if you’re not ditch, how are we supposed to feed our families. I have one member of my family who was a waitress but now has no income coming home and another who had his hours cut by to a quarter. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO STAY HOME?

    Listen to your President. The chinese virus is a bio-weapon not because of myself or Trump but because the chinese hate America. Stop trying to debate with your 50 quotient IQ’S. This war will only be won by spreading truth, not cnn or msnbc talking points supplied to these networks by their masters in china. It’s clear that the flouridated water from your masters has calcified your pineal glands totally cutting you off from the original source “GOD”. Stop being professional victims and contribute to the cause of stopping this sick and evil chinese plot against AMERICA and our allies…

      Cease your investigations. We have hacked your firewall and sent you this message which only you can see. You are powerless. Nobody will believe you. We will defeat all of you freedom loving Christians with our evil, Godless, communist ways! We will continue to poison the entire population with our vaccines, chemtrails, and now COVID(COmmie VIrus of Death)-19. It will brainwash the masses into having more abortions, so that we may harvest the fetuses to allow us all to live longer, and because, well, we just love eating babies. All hail Satan and The Great King Vortnorp III of the Underground Lizard People!

      Sincerely yours,
      The Democratic Party, The Liberal Fake News Media, & The Illuminati

          Mikey, or Citizen #329843009 according to your tracking chip. We pulled off Pizza Gate, JFK, and Area 51 without getting caught. You think stopping Dumb Donnie from seeking the truth will be a challenge? We, the soy boy beta cucks and the blue-haired feminists will all rise up, steal all of your guns, and eat all of your babies! I will make sure to invite you to AOC’s demonic transformation ceremony. Only a few more sacrifices to go before we summon Bal’ron, and then Mikey, oh my dear Mikey, that’s when things get good. You see, the Jews were biologically engineered by the Lizard Men to outsmart the Europeans and gain all of the political power and influence, so that one day, we could free the Prime Evils from their underground prisons that the Mal’Tuk (Lizard Libertarians) crafted centuries ago. Bal’ron is the Lord of the Commies. His job will be to take the individual liberties from all souls. We will all be bound to his will. We will be forced into labor camps, we will all be taxed at 99% which will fund the freeloaders, and then if you get sick, get ready for the death panels! And that’s only the beginning Mikey! It’s cute you think China is all behind this. They are merely our puppets. We get to taste the sweet baby flesh while they get to continue to be commies. It’s all coming together nicely. We are taking our time, but it will all be worth it in the end! Muhuwahahaha!

    China is a proxy of the Rothschild and Rockafeller money grubbing operations, like say tri-lateral commission for example. Without all of the soulless chinese labor the US would never have been able to drive derivatives up to 2 quadrillion. It’s intent is to keep broke dorito chomping NPC’s like yourself from ever grabbing a stranglehold of your own destiny. Quantum Entanglement can never be produced or seduced by your master, Ronald McDonald, even though you crave his special sauce. It’s clear that you have studied under the great tutelage of Dr. Mike Boudria formerly of WSAR 1480 AM fame. His vice for Chesters Chicken is in complete parallel to your special sauce desires. Your good friend Alex Jones of has been the channel chosen by your father to disseminate fantastical goblygook which you seem to spew with satisfaction and joy. When wal-mart runs out of chinese produced dorito cheese dust, your fairy godmother Nancy Pelosi will try to replace it with her own magical govt. cheese dust causing a panic run at the unemployment office where your kind dwell. Just think of all the fun times that will be had by you and yours waiting in endless lines on your way to hell. Maybe if you remain locked in complete adolescence, at 32 years of age, in your parents basement, they will be allowed to claim you as the dependant NPC that Minecraft has created.
