 COVID-19 Response


The Hadley BOH  most strongly advises all Hampshire county residents to stay home as much as possible, wear a mask when you leave your home,  avoid eating in restaurants including those with tents set up,   avoid going to gyms, shop only as necessary and maintain social distancing while in a store, and have only household members in their homes during the coming holiday season.  


Tips for a safer thanksgiving -



In the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic the Board of Health in Hadley is working to keep us all as safe as possible.  We are charged with ensuring that all businesses in Hadley are in compliance with the State Guidelines.

If you have a concern regarding a business please call the BOH and leave a voicemail.  We are following up on all complaints in a timely manner as mandated by the State.  Below is the State escalation policy.  We will begin to  list here on the website all businesses that have reached the second phase of the escalation policy who remain non-compliant.


1.  Verbal consultation and redirection.Up to one time before escalation
2.  Written redirection              Up to one time before escatation
3.  Fines up to $300.00Up to 3 times before escalation
4.  Cease and Desist order - the local BOH  and the State do not have the authority to close a business for violation of COVID 19 workplace safety standards.  Where continued non-compliance with COVID 19 workplace safety standards warrants the closing of a business, the local BOH or State DLS must first seek a court injunction.
