Town Manager Mark Sciota released an update on town services following Gov. Ned Lamont’s request.
The police department, fire department, water pollution control and community services will remain fully staffed. Highway and parks will maintain a crew on a rotating basis until further notice. Parks and the linear trail will remain open, but playscapes are closed to the public.
Officials remind residents to use social distancing while using town parks and the linear trail.
The Calendar House will have limited bus services for medical appointments and designated lunch deliveries.
Town meetings that are necessary to continue town functions will still be held through electronic means.
“Please check our website as to what meetings will be held,” said Sciota. “In most cases, there will be opportunity for the public to view live stream or listen on conference call. Please review agendas carefully.”
