To the Residents of Plympton:
We hope this letter finds you well. We are writing to inform you that due to the continuing increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Town and our positive test rate percentage doubling over a matter of days, we are enacting the following protocols:
Town House and Council on Aging:
The Plympton Town House will remain closed to in-person business and we will continue conducting business remotely, as we successfully accomplished throughout the Spring of 2020 and in recent weeks. We have set a tentative date of Monday, February 1, 2021 to re-open for in-person business as usual. This date was selected after careful consideration of Plympton’s positive test rate percentage, statistics available to us from the MA Department of Public Health and in anticipation of a second surge in the upcoming two weeks.
All Town offices will be fully available to conduct business remotely via Email and/or telephone during this timeframe. Email and telephone messages will be checked daily. If you need to deliver something to the Town House, you can send it by mail to the respective Department, 5 Palmer Road, Plympton, MA 02367 or you can utilize the drop boxes on the outside of the Town House by the main entrance for payments or dropping off paperwork. The drop boxes on the exterior of the building are checked frequently throughout the week, so you can feel comfortable making use of this resource.
The Council on Aging pantry will continue to be available to seniors on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., however, the public will not be able to enter the pantry directly; if you come to the Town House during the respective timeframe, bags will be prepared and brought out to your vehicle or handed to you at the entryway of the building.
Our Inspectional Services Department (Building, Wiring, Plumbing/Gas, Zoning) will continue to be available by appointment for any of your needs. Please Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact them by phone: (781) 585-0571 to set up an appointment and/or if you have any questions.
