All Burlington Municipal Offices Closed to Public but Will be Staffed


Burlington municipal offices will be closed starting Tuesday but will be staffed so members of the public can get information over the phone or online. 


“The Town of Burlington would like to announce the following update to municipal services for residents,” a release from the town states. “These actions are being taken out of abundance of caution and upon consultation with the Burlington Board of Health, and other guidance received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH).” 


“All municipal buildings are closed to the public starting on Tuesday, March 17,” the release states. 


Offices will be staffed and available by phone and email during normal business hours. Residents are asked to call town offices and town employees will make every effort to accommodate their needs. 


“We urge all residents to observe Social Distancing protocols and to not congregate in parks, playgrounds, and other public areas,” the release states. “Our residents have always looked out for each other and we ask that you continue to be vigilant in checking up on your neighbors. Lastly, please continue to patronize our local restaurants and businesses if you are able to do so. Although the Governor’s order prohibits onsite consumption, takeout and delivery options will continue to be available at our restaurants.”


Finally, the release states further updates may be needed as conditions change.  


“The situation is very fluid and therefore subject to change rapidly as we receive updates from our public health professionals,” the release states. “We appreciate all of the cooperation we have received from our residents to date and ask for your understanding as we continue to navigate through these issues in the upcoming days.”
