Our Preparedness Plan for COVID-19
The Village at Duxbury is committed to doing all it reasonably can to prevent the spread of COVID-19 illness at our community. We have a sacred obligation to protect our residents and the staff who serve them. We believe honesty and transparency are critical to keeping the hard-earned trust of our residents, their family members, staff, and the greater Duxbury Community. To that end, we update this table below on a semi-weekly basis (Mondays and Thursdays) to show cumulative and current positive cases of the illness on the Village campus.
