In an effort to maintain the health of the public, and Town staff, and consistent with County and State partners who are taking similar actions in response to the spread of COVID-19, the Mayor has directed the Town of Somerset to implement the following procedures through Friday, April 3:
- The Town Hall will be closed to public access. Town Staff will be on a telework (i.e., remote) schedule when possible, and will continue to monitor and respond to emails and return calls left at the Town Hall.
- All activities, events, and meetings at the Town Hall are canceled. This includes all official and unofficial Town Committees.
- All trash, recycling, and compost pickups will occur as regularly scheduled.
The Town is also committed to offering assistance to the elderly and disabled, who are most vulnerable during these difficult times. If you know of any Somerset residents that may need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the Town Hall.
Town officials and staff who interact with the public are adhering to prevention efforts, including avoiding handshakes, maintain “social distance”, sanitizing vehicles and work spaces, frequently washing hands, and staying home when feeling will.
Residents should continue to stay informed. Below is a list of website resources:
Should you or a member of your household believe that you have symptoms (fever and cough) or if you have been in close contact with a person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, you should call your health care practitioner, or the Montgomery County Department of Health & Human Services’ Disease Control Office to speak with a nurse at (240)-777-1755. If you are unable to reach MCDHHS, you can call the state’s Infectious Disease Bureau at (410)-767-6700 during the daytime or (410)-795-7365 after-hours.
