We have entered Stage 4 of the Plan to Restart Maine’s Economy. What this means is that we are able see some establishments open to greater capacity, and even bars have been given the go-ahead to reopen starting November 2nd. But, we also must now use masks in all buildings and areas open to the public. This means the Town Office, Schools, Stores, all Places of Business, and even parking lots. All other health and safety protocols such as hand washing and social distancing remain in effect.
After the COVID 19 incident at the mill, we are on heightened alert to maintain our vigilance in defending our community against the effects of the COVID 19 Pandemic, we must realize that the virus is still circulating, though at this point in time, Washington County has been spared most of its effects. This is still a time to take this threat seriously.
The Town Office is open to the public. Please wear a mask to protect others. We are restricting access to the counter to one person at a time. If there is someone in front of you, please wait at least six feet away. The counter area has been refitted with a Plexiglas panel to help prevent the spread of the virus. If you have business with Marilyn, the Town Manager, or Recreation Department, please ensure you maintain proper social distancing and wear a mask while conducting your business.
The Library is open to public access, but we have limited the number of people allowed in at any one time.
The Transfer Station, Wastewater Treatment Plant, Public Works, and Police Department continue to operate with minor modifications to their activities due to the nature of their contact with the public.
