Humason in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19
WESTFIELD – The Mayor’s Drive Through Easter Egg Hunt is this Saturday, March 27, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Westfield High School parking lot for children ages one to 10.
Families will travel along an Easter Egg Trail, counting the colored Easter Egg drawings posted on the fence along the athletic fields. At the end of the trail, there will be goodie bags for children and a special appearance by the Easter bunny. While everyone needs to stay in their cars, they can take photos of the Easter bunny from their vehicle.
Mayor Donald F. Humason Jr., who was looking forward to greeting families, will not be present, as he is in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19. Humason has had mild symptoms and is feeling well, but is exercising caution and staying home during the quarantine period.
Humason said he got the COVID test on March 18 after experiencing mild symptoms, and received a call half an hour later to say that the test was positive. He said fortunately, no one else in his office tested positive, and he has been at home quarantining with his family.
Humason thanked Holly Lurgio and Michelle Moriarty in his office for planning the Easter Egg Hunt, the Fire Department for driving the Easter bunny, and volunteers from the Boys & Girls Club and National Honor Society for filling the Easter eggs.
“Hopefully, lots of people will come out on Saturday. We couldn’t do this without the Easter bunny, the Fire Department, all the volunteers, and Holly and Michelle,” he said.
While home, the mayor has been continuing to meet with department heads by zoom for the budget review process, which is underway.
