Declaration by Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer on Dr. Samuel S. Wong, Framingham Health Department Director of Medical Leave

FRAMINGHAM. I’m sure many of you were Reading conflicting information on Medical Leave of Health Director Dr. Sam Wong.

The city released an announcement on December 29, 2020 that Dr. Wong will be taking vacation from today

If you read today’s MetroWest Daily News you will see in his own words that he is exhausted and desperately needs a break.

I have a collaborative and mutually supportive relationship with Dr. Wong. In fact, I recently reassigned him to his position. I have only the utmost respect and admiration for the work he has done in the town of Framingham.

Dr. Sam Wong is a accomplished professional, and right now he needs to use the energy to take care of himself and his family. As a Framingham City employee, he has the same rights and privileges as any employee, and personnel matters must be treated appropriately and with respect.

At this point, I ask all of you to continue to support the health department that he has set up so that it can work extremely well under the leadership of Deputy Director Alexandra DePalo.

Finally, I ask you to honor and respect the fact that Dr. Wong and his family need privacy, prayers, and good wishes for a speedy recovery at this time.
