OCTOBER 1 – REVISED TIME LIMITS TO ACTIVITY BAN / CURFEW

Please see the notice below from the Board of Health:

Effective Tuesday, October 1st, all outside activities shall be suspended from 5 pm to 7:30 am until further notice.  Please note this is an important modification of the original dusk to dawn ban as the days are getting shorter. If a hard frost does not occur before the end of October, the times for the curfew will, again, be reviewed and adjusted. This decision is based on the continued cases of EEE being found throughout the State, some being fatal. The current threat level remains at “CRITICAL”, there is no higher level. This is the Board’s responsibility to you, the public.

This is not a voluntary curfew! It applies to all properties under the
jurisdiction of the Town of Carver. It applies to all sports programs at CMHS. It applies to all Town recreational programs. Please, if you must be outside between 5 pm and 7:30 am, wear appropriate clothing (long sleeve shirts and pants) and use an EPA approved insect repellent. It’s called personal protection!

On behalf of your Board of Health, we appreciate your Understanding of how serious this threat is and your cooperation in keeping everyone safe. We really don’t want to have a confirmed case or death from EEE in Carver.

As many of you know September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month.   The Carver Community has always been a strong supporter in the fight against pediatric cancer.  Over the last several years Carver Public Schools has partnered with Wicked Good Cause, a local non profit organization, to GO GOLD for the month of September!!!  Currently all of our Fall Sports Teams are wearing gold socks, as well as many youth programs in town.

Please spread the word (flyer available for download below) and lets make our buildings GOLD for the day.  In addition to posters in the building the Middle High School will host Gold Boots in the main offices and the Middle High School lunch rooms on Friday for any and all donations that will support the cause and help to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
