PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Greenwich Town Hall will operate with limited services and access beginning Tuesday, March 17, through at least Friday, April 3, 2020.

 

First Selectman Fred Camillo has made the following decisions to protect the health and safety of the public and Town staff, while maintaining core government functions.

  • First Selectman Camillo has issued a Declaration of Local State of Emergency, effective immediately.

  • Private businesses must limit meeting room occupancy by half and must not exceed CDC guidelines of 50 people. This will further restrict the maximum number of individuals allowed in an enclosed spaced as determined by Greenwich Fire Marshals. This includes all rooms with a designated occupancy limit.

  • Reinforcing Governor Lamont’s announcement, all bars and restaurants that serve food will temporarily be required to move to take-out and delivery services only. Bars which do not serve food will be required to temporarily close. These measures will take effect at 8 P.M. today, Monday, March 16, 2020.

  • The Town’s Emergency Operations Center’s (EOC) status has been elevated from “open and monitoring” to “open and partial activation”.

  • Beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020, Greenwich Town Hall is closed to the public. Time sensitive services will be provided by appointment only. Please contact the department directly to request help. All face-to-face interaction should be extremely limited. Please allow sufficient time for a response.

  • Greenwich First Responders will maintain their assigned shifts and schedules. The Public Safety Complex will have extremely limited access to the public. All Fire Stations are closed to the public. For non-emergency issues call 203-622-8000. 

March 16, 2020 Town Hall limits access.

  • The Transfer Station will maintain its normal schedule. Commercial and private haulers can continue to access the site. Encourage all residents who must use the site to limit their visits to absolute necessity only.

  • The Grass Island Waste Water Treatment Plant is closed the public. Septage haulers can continue to access the site.

  • Town beaches, parks, the Griffith E. Harris Golf Course, and open spaces will remain open. There isn’t any access to bathrooms at school facilities. Limited bathrooms will be available at open Town sites. Playground equipment is closed. All indoor recreation facilities – the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center and the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center - are closed to the public.

  • A majority of Board and Commission meetings during the next three weeks will be canceled, or moved to teleconference.

  • Hours and services are subject to change.
