NORTH ANDOVER, MA — In late July, the first coronavirus wave had been suppressed, and North Andover had just a handful of confirmed coronavirus cases.

That week, Patch reported on complaints filed with the Massachusetts Attorney General's officeabout coronavirus safety concerns at workplaces across the state. The office opened a portal to collect complaints on May 20.

Over 1,300 complaints had been filed statewide, but just one in North Andover, about Chipotle.

Last week, we asked readers what they thought was the site's most-read story. The right answer: the coronavirus safety complaint.
