TOWN OF GROTON – COVID-19 UPDATE
As the uptick in COVID-19 cases in the Town of Groton continues, the Groton Select Board and Town Manager have decided to close the Town Hall, Library and Senior Center to the public effective Thursday, December 17, 2020. This closure shall remain in full force and effect through 6:00 a.m. on Monday, January 4, 2021. All employees will be working remotely and there will be no appointments or programs at any of these buildings, with the exception of the Library’s Curb-Side Pick-Up Program and the Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels and transportation for medical appointments and grocery shopping. Employees will be responding to emails and phone messages during this closure and will do their best to respond to the needs of our Residents while working remotely over the next several weeks. Residents can still drop off payments and other correspondence in the “Drop Box” located at the rear of the Town Hall. We appreciate your patience and cooperation with this change of access as we continue to take every precaution to protect our residents and employees while dealing with this Pandemic.
The Town of Groton and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are taking unprecedented steps in order to reduce the rate of spread by working proactively to reduce transmission and promote public health recommendations. We urge all citizens to exercise appropriate measures in order to reduce the risk of infection. Additional information regarding risk and containment can be found on the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/. Thank you for your immediate attention and cooperation with this.
