COVID-19 numbers on rise, Town Hall closes
SALISBURY — First Selectman Curtis Rand opened the regular monthly selectmen’s meeting on Monday, Jan. 3, with a warning of the increased number of COVID-19 cases and the extreme contagiousness of the omicron variant.
He said the town did receive a limited number of rapid tests from the state, which were given to “front-line” people, including employees at LaBonne’s grocery store.
Town Hall is closed again to the public, but the vestibule is open and people needing assistance can go there and find commonly used forms.
There is also a phone and a list of extensions so people can call inside for, say, a new fishing license. Selectman Chris Williams warned against too many people being in the vestibule at one time, and asked people to be patient and use common sense.
Other town halls in the region are following the same or similar protocols.
