The concern over the Coronavirus outbreak has hit home this weekend. In a notice posted on the Town of Clarksburg's website, the Clarksburg Board of Health has been notified of one confirmed case of the Coronavirus in the town.

It states that "as a precautionary measure, town and school officials are closing the Clarksburg School, Clarksburg Public Library, Clarksburg Senior Center, and Clarksburg Town Hall effective immediately through Friday, March 13 in order to disinfect and thoroughly clean all facilities. Town officials will reassess the situation on Friday, March 13 and will issue an update at that time."

IBerkshires.com on Sunday reported that North Berkshire School Union Superintendent John Franzoni said the individual, described as in his 60s, was not a school employee but noted that Clarksburg is a small town so there can be a lot of interaction between community members.

 The Clarksburg Town website and Clarksburg School website will post further information as it is released.
