Little Compton asks out-of-state visitors to quarantine

Posted

Little Compton today (Wednesday, March 25) asked that all visitors to town from outside the state, even if homeowners here, self-quarantine for 14 days.

The statement, signed by Robert Mushen, Town Council president, and Antonio Teixeira, town administrator, reads:

The effort to overcome the effects of the Coronavirus continues to require special measures from all of us in Little Compton. We encourage all residents to carefully abide by current CDC guidelines and the Governor’s Office recommendations with respect to personal hygiene and social distancing. Those principles have served us well, and are especially important with our demographics.

We request that all persons arriving in town from outside Rhode Island, whether homeowners, seasonal residents or visitors, self quarantine for a period of fourteen days upon arrival. As has been evident elsewhere, a single person’s illness can propagate quickly.

If you experience flu-like symptoms, please take action to notify your physician. Any resident in need of assistance can telephone the Public Safety Complex at 401-635-2311 or 401-635-2323.

Town Offices will remain closed until further notice. Residents are encouraged to monitor the Town’s website, www.littlecomptonri.org for updates regarding further advisories.
