Town of Lincoln
Reopening Plan Update
February 26, 2021
Effective Monday, March 8th, Town Offices, Bemis Hall and Library will reopen to the public, subject to the continuation of health and safety protocols recommended by the Department of Public Health (e.g., mandatory face masks, social distancing, occupancy limits, front desk registration to enable contact tracing should it become necessary, etc.). The Library reopening to the public on March 8th is by scheduled appointment to help limit the number of people in the building at any one time. Our decision to reopen to the public is consistent with the most recent guidance from the Commonwealth, announced by Governor Baker yesterday, scheduled to take effect Monday, March 1st. We are, however, delaying one week until March 8th to provide our town staff the opportunity to adjust child care and other personal arrangements. The Town’s Public Health Team continues to closely monitor the best available public health data available from multiple sources. The state’s decision to move forward to the next reopening phase is in response to significantly improving public health trend data. Local conditions have been trending in the same manner.
To protect the health and safety of our residents and staff, we continue to urge the public to make use of the town’s on-line transactional capabilities, consider communicating with town staff via phone or zoom conferencing, schedule appointments in advance where possible, and to be careful to follow health and safety protocols when visiting town buildings.
Our town boards and committees will continue to meet remotely as we enter this next phase of reopening.
