COVID-19 Transmission Reduction Plan for Town Buildings

As positivity rates continue to fluctuate, the transmission reduction plan for town buildings will be implemented systematically and in phases. This approach will help ensure continuity of services, with limited interruption and disturbance should we need to revert to or advance between phases, as well as to ensure the ongoing health and safety of both the public and our employees.
