Local Police Departments Are being Affected By COVID-19
For police, minimizing contact with the public can be a challenge.
North Adams Police Chief Jason Wood says test results are pending on one of his officers. Other county police departments, including Lenox, Williamstown and Great Barrington, have yet to see any cases among their officers.
Lenox Police Chief Stephen O'Brien said arrests are being conducted as a last resort in order to minimize close contact and potential exposure
People are encouraged to call or email the department with nonemergency matters rather than coming to the station in person.
