Marlborough – Effective Monday, December 21 all city buildings in Marlborough will be closed to the public until further notice due to the uptick in COVID positive cases. All city departments will be fully operational; however, buildings will have limited public access by appointment only. Residents are encouraged to use the U.S. Postal Service or the drop boxes that are located at the front and back entrances of City Hall.
“We are hopeful that we are able to reopen within the first quarter of the 2021 and will continue to monitor the COVID statistics and confer with our Board of Health,” said Mayor Arthur Vigeant.
The Marlborough Senior Center and public library have remained closed since March, but services are available by appointment. The Marlborough Public Library will continue offering “Contactless Holds Pickup” by appointment as well. City meetings will take place virtually with any and all members participating remotely and will be available on Marlborough Government Access channel 96 (Comcast customers) or channel 33 (Verizon customers). The Marlborough Board of Health continues to remind folks that it is more important than ever to continue the “3 W’s” of COVID prevention: wear face coverings, wait 6 feet apart, and wash hands frequently. Limit your gathering size and stay at home and get tested if ill.
