As all of us continue to respond and react to the ever-changing landscape of the COVID-19 outbreak, it has become apparent that “social distancing” is essential to our common public health response. As you may be aware, all gatherings over 25 people have been banned in Massachusetts; individuals are instructed to maintain a physical separation of six feet or more and there are new protocols for document treatment and handling of cash. Also, our public schools have been closed for the next three weeks.
The health and safety of our staff and community are of utmost importance to all in Georgetown. To that end, effective today, Town of Georgetown’s non-public safety department buildings will be closed to public access until April 6th. However, services to our residents will continue:
- Police, Fire, 911 Communications and DPW services will continue unchanged and without interruption.
- Non-public safety departments will still provide services to residents through online transactions, Email and via telephone.
- The Council on Aging and the Library will not be providing services until April 6th or until further notice.
- Regulatory departments will still ensure that the design and construction industries will be able to seek permit reviews and needed inspections and regulatory oversight.
- Treasury, Accounting, and Assessing functions will also be operational
