The state will send alerts to phones in Chelsea, Everett, Lawrence, Lynn, Nantucket, New Bedford, Revere, Framingham, Winthrop and Worcester on Monday evening to warn of persistently high COVID-19 risks there.

In a statement from the COVID-19 Command Center, the state said some phones in neighboring towns may also receive the wireless emergency alerts.

The alerts will be sent between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. and will say: “MAGovt Alert COVID19 is a serious threat in [city/town name]. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Keep your distance. Do not share food drinks utensils. Stay home if sick. Get a free COVID test. Stop gatherings with family and friends. Protect you and your loved ones. For more info visit”

The Baker administration said the alerts are part of a broader campaign that includes field teams, paid advertising and other communications to remind residents that the pandemic is not over.
