For Immediate Release
Governor Baker closes all non-essential businesses, Tyngsborough Town Hall to remain closed until at least April 6, 2020 with limited services being conducted remotely by Town employees
Tyngsborough, Massachusetts– In response to COVID-19 Order #13 issued by Governor Charles D. Baker this morning, Town Administrator Matthew Hanson announced today that all non-essential employees shall not report for work until at least April 6, 2020. The order issued today declared that all non-essential employees of certain businesses not report to work in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. A full list of impacted businesses can be found at mass.gov/covid19. As of March 22, 2020, there were 646 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Commonwealth.
Town staff have been asked to work remotely for the duration of this temporary shutdown to the extent possible. Most town staff will continue to be accessible by email and will continue to receive mail, though on a less frequent basis. Further, residents with urgent matters that cannot be addressed by email can call 978-649-2300 x155 and leave a message. This voicemail box will be checked periodically and time sensitive matters will be directed to the appropriate department. Finally, tax payments can continue to be mailed to Town Hall or dropped off using the secure after hours drop box located near the main entrance. These bills will be processed periodically as staffing allows. We have compiled a list of ways for Town residents to continue to conduct business with Town Hall on our website. Please visit www.tyngsboroughma.gov to find this list.
The Town of Tyngsborough remains committed to fighting the COVID-19 virus and slowing its spread and we appreciate your patience as we work through this difficult times.
