Sapelli said Agawam the Town Hall will be going fully remote for the remainder of the week after a third Town Hall employee had tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday.

“We got to be careful. People have to wear masks, wash their hands, keep six feet apart because now we have the Christmas holiday coming up and the cases seem to be spiking wherever you are,” said Sapelli.
