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.
Updates and Announcements
- The Massachusetts COVID-19 Dashboard includes daily and cumulative confirmed cases; cases by hospital, county, and age/sex/ethnicity; testing by date; deaths; hospital capacity; nursing home data; and PPE distribution. The state now publishes a list of cases in all cities and towns, including Wakefield. The file is updated each Wednesday by 4 p.m.
In order to provide the most current and relevant information to our residents, outdated announcements have been removed from this page.
- We know how confusing it can be for our local businesses to create and navigate a reopening plan. The Town of Wakefield and Chamber of Commerce collaborated to develop a guide to consolidate information and get you started. Because guidance changes often, and industry information will be released from the state in phases, this guide will continually evolve.
