Information regarding Governor Baker’s Phased Reopening can be found here: http://chicopeema.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=483 



The number of tested/confirmed cases in Chicopee: 2767*Total

(*Our City’s numbers do not reflect all that the State includes: the reason is some citizens no longer physically reside in Chicopee. They now reside in Non-Chicopee Assisted Living Facilities throughout the State but still hold a mailing address in Chicopee. For example – Holyoke Soldiers Home is the current home to six of our active cases but we do NOT include them in our numbers because they would not affect our population during this pandemic. At this hour – we have 14 of this type of active case. We do, however, continue to check in with them and make sure they are taken care of.)
