Somerville announced tonight its shutting all of its public schools and library branches and the Somerville Boxing Club for a week after three residents linked to that Biogen meeting tested positive for Covid-19.
The city had initially said it would just shout the West Somerville Community School for two days of cleaning after one of the three, the spouse of a teacher at the school, tested positive. But tonight, officials say, they learned that a parent of a student at the East Somerville Community School had also tested positive.
The third case is in a resident with no apparent connection to local schools.
In addition to schools and libraries, the city has also cancelled all Parks and Recreation programs.
