COVID-19 Info Hub

As COVID-19 information and response is constantly evolving, Wakefield officials will provide updates and outreach via the Town’s website ( and Facebook page (@townofwakefieldma).

Residents are urged to register with Wakefield’s CodeRED e-alert system if they have not enrolled in the past. Should Town officials need to disseminate urgent information regarding COVID-19, or any other emergency, this ultra-high-speed telephone communication system will be utilized. Creating a “managed account” with a username and password allows residents to update their contact information at any time. Individuals who do not have internet access can call the Wakefield Fire Department at 781-246-6435 for assistance registering.
