Dear Hingham residents and businesses,
I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on Town of Hingham municipal operations during this evolving public health emergency. As you know, as of the close of business on March 13, 2020, the Town suspended all non-essential municipal services and shifted staff to remote work to the extent possible. Right now, we are planning to operate in this limited state until at least April 7, 2020, in line with Governor Baker’s decision on March 15th to close schools across the Commonwealth until that date.
The situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve and we are learning more about the virus and ways to protect our residents every day. The Health Department is in daily communication with DPH and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Please visit the DPH and CDC websites for the latest COVID-19 information.
Please consult the Town website for further updates and for details on how to contact Town staff while municipal facilities are closed.
Thank you for your patience and your support as we work through these uncharted waters together.
