Board of Health
Due to the increasing number of positive cases on COVID-19 in the Commonwealth and in the Town of Canton, all municipal offices will be moving to a “by-appointment only” service model beginning at 8:00 a.m. on December 21, 2020.
The appointment only service model is intended to limit contacts between visitors and employees; thereby promoting a safer work environment for visitors and employees.
The Board of Health continues on the look for both medical and non-medical volunteers to assist in our efforts.
If you are looking for volunteer opportunities in the community or indeed outside our community please sign up for MA Responds, a confidential statewide database that offers a standardized application process.
Volunteers that do not enroll in MA Responds will not be eligible to volunteer with the Board of Health.
