UPDATE ON TOWN OF BURLINGTON MUNICIPAL OPERATIONS #2
The Town of Burlington would like to announce the following update to municipal services for residents. These actions are being taken out of abundance of caution and upon consultation with the Burlington Board of Health, and other guidance received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH).
ALL MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC ON TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 2020
In an effort to contribute to Governor Baker’s order to slow the spread of Coronavirus throughout Massachusetts by Social Distancing, all municipal buildings will be closed to the public beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Offices will be staffed and available by phone and email during normal business hours. Residents are asked to please call our town offices and we will make every effort to accommodate their needs.
We urge all residents to observe Social Distancing protocols and to not congregate in parks, playgrounds, and other public areas. Our residents have always looked out for each other and we ask that you continue to be vigilant in checking up on your neighbors. Lastly, please continue to patronize our local restaurants and businesses if you are able to do so. Although the Governor’s order prohibits onsite consumption, takeout and delivery options will continue to be available at our restaurants. The situation is very fluid and therefore subject to change rapidly as we receive updates from our public health professionals.
We appreciate all of the cooperation we have received from our residents to date and ask for your understanding as we continue to navigate through these issues in the upcoming days.
