Shrewsbury Town Buildings Closed to the Public through May 1, 2020

Shrewsbury, MA – April 1, 2020

In response to the Coronavirus and in consideration of information from the Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Massachusetts Department of Public Health,

and the State of Emergency and order of March 31, 2020 issued by Governor Baker,

the Shrewsbury Town Hall, Schools, Senior Center and all other buildings with the

exception of the Police and Fire Stations for emergency services will continue to be

closed to the public through May 1, 2020. Town and School Playgrounds are also

closed until further notice to aid the public in practicing in social distancing. The status

will be evaluated at a later date if further closing is necessary. The staff will be available

from 8am until 4:30pm Monday through Friday to answer phone calls or email questions

from the public. However, please be advised that staff is working in an alternative

staffing model (decreased staff alternating in shifts) so response may be delayed. The

closure of the Town Hall will impact those seeking services from all departments

operating at the Town Hall including the School Department and SELCO.

Residents and other interested parties can pay bills, apply for permits and licenses and

access other information and services at the Town Website

Payments by check will still be accepted through the drop box located to the east of the

main entrance of the Town Hall. Cash is not accepted. Department-specific

operational changes will be posted to their respective webpage on Town website

The closure of the Town Hall also means that SELCO customers will not be able to

conduct their business at the customer service counter. SELCO will be developing

alternative means of servicing their customers. Information related to SELCO can be

found on their website at .

Meals on Wheels will continue to operate through the Council on Aging at this time, but

may be subject to change. Transportation services through the Senior Center are

suspended at this time.
