UPDATED: Travel Guidance

  1. The quarantine went from 14 to 10 days
  2. Added language (last bullet) that speaks to individuals who have been COVID -positive and what their travel expectation is.



Last Bullet:
Individuals who are COVID-19-recovered, meaning individuals who tested positive more than 10 days but less than 90 days ago and who do not have symptoms, do not need to obtain a negative PCR test prior to traveling to or quarantine upon arrival to Massachusetts. COVID-19 recovered individuals arriving in Massachusetts must have documentation of the positive PCR test result available if asked. This exception does not include COVID-19-recovered individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19, who must follow all testing and quarantine guidance outlined in the travel rules.

Partnership with Attleboro Public Library - Additional FREE TUTORING

Attleboro Public Library Launches On-Demand, Anywhere Online Tutoring for All Learners

Includes online tutoring for all levels of learners from children through adults

Attleboro Public Library is pleased to announce the launch of Brainfuse Helpnow – on demand, anytime, anywhere eLearning for all ages and levels. Brainfuse HelpNow™ provides differentiated learning solutions for users of diverse needs and backgrounds. Students communicate with live tutors using an interactive whiteboard to chat, write, draw, copy/paste text or images and graph homework problems. HelpNow™ will be available to all Attleboro Public Library patrons from the public computers at the library (when open to the public) or from any home or school computer with internet connection. To access, students must have an Attleboro library card in good standing. The library card number and PIN number (usually the last four digits of their phone number) is needed to log on to Brainfuse HelpNow, then students create an account so they can interact with the services offered by Brainfuse HelpNow. If a student does not have a library card, they may register for a temporary card using this link. If they have a card, but it is blocked or expired, they can call 508-222-0157 and library staff can work with them to resolve the issue.
