Precautionary Steps We Are Taking
Concord has measures in place to support continued operations during unusual events such as this. We are taking steps to continue to serve our community to the best of our ability and without major service interruptions.
We have taken the following precautionary measures that are consistent with those recommended by the CDC:
- In order to help prevent the spread of any illness to the public or our employees, Town employees who are feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms of illness (including respiratory illness or fever), or have a family member who is ill, are directed to stay home. We will also be following the guidance of the Massachusetts Department of Health regarding the removal of any employees from the workplace and having them self-quarantine should they become exposed to the virus.
- In accordance with CDC guidance, we are asking that anyone who is experiencing a fever or respiratory illness or those that have recently returned from CDC Level 3 or Level 2 countries postpone their visit to any Concord Town Buildings, municipal facility, or other public spaces for the appropriate amount of time as determined in coordination with the Health Department and your physician. Adherence to this guidance will help minimize the potential spread of the virus while protecting our employees and community.
- We encourage you to utilize our online payment systems and to call rather than visit for information or questions. Please also continue to monitor the concordma.gov website for updates and sign up for news and notices under “Notify Me” for updates from Town Officials regarding COVID-19 and other Town related information. Updates will also continue to be posted on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram from @TownofConcordMA using #HealthyConcordMA
- Steps are being taken to sanitize surfaces and common areas to mitigate the spread of germs.
