There’s still no word yet on how the two patients in Hopkinton contracted the virus. Town authorities said they are now assessing “the risk of transmission to all residents, faculty, and students.”

Two schools in Wayland were closed Wednesday as well after a parent there tested positive for COVID-19. That parent has children at Loker Elementary School and the middle school. Both of them will be shut down for cleaning. Town officials say the students have no symptoms. They have been home in self-quarantine since Monday.
