WEATHERSFIELD LOCAL RESOURCE CENTER
In relation to the COVID-19 pandemic we have made several changes in Weathersfield to prevent the spread of the virus in our area.
Our Emergency Management Team held a meeting on March 17, 2020 at 06:30PM to form a partnership and coordinate our response to COVID-19. Our team is working diligently to insure Weathersfield residents are safe.
If you or someone you know needs COVID-19 related assistance, such as obtaining groceries or other essential supplies, please visit the link to the left and fill out the "CLICK HERE FOR ASSISTANCE" form.
If you would like to sign up as a volunteer to assist vulnerable residents in our community who are self-quarantining to prevent COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19, please visit the link to the left and fill out the "CLICK HERE TO VOLUNTEER" form.
New measures are in place to prevent the spread of the virus in our area. We are committed to a consistent, logical, and informed decision-making process. We urge Weathersfield residents to play a role and use preventative measures to reduce the likelihood of spreading COVID-19 in our community.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
- Stay at home when you are sick
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
- Clean and disinfect freqently touched objects and surfaces using regular household cleaning items
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
Weathersfield's Martin Memorial Hall is currently closed to the public. We will be continuing business with changes to our operations. To prevent spreading the virus we are refraining from face-to-face interaction and have shifted to conducting Town business by phone or email. It is of upmost importance for our staff to be able to continue performing business to insure the availability of our services to you.
Our Office Administration will be available Monday-Thursday, 7:30am-5:30pm. Please contact us at 802-674-2626 or by email at email@example.com. We will be able to assist you with all Town related business quickly, including regular business that was conducted prior to this pandemic.
The Highway Department is currently working normal hours Monday-Thursday, 6am-4pm, however, new measures are in place to prevent spreading COVID-19, such as following workplace sanitizing guidelines that were put in place on March 20, 2020, restricting all outside visitors from the highway garage, and only allowing essential vendors within who must follow our emergency guidelines. All work and services will continue as planned.
The Weathersfield Solid Waste Facility remains open. Solid Waste Staff have been briefed on safety protocols as they relate to COVID-19. Protocols and procedures have been instituted for employee and public health and safety. Social distancing with staff has been implemented. To protect staff and residents, staff will not be opening doors or trunks, instead, you will be asked "how many bags of trash." Also, please hold your ticket for staff to punch. Staff will no longer be handling punch cards. If you see a staff member with a mask on, please understand that masks are being worn for their personal protection.
Other things to consider when managing your recycling include:
- Bag ALL trash
- Consolidate trips to the facility with other errands
- Reduce frequency of trips to the facility
- Consider using a private waste/recycling hauler
- Tissues, paper towels, napkins, etc, are NOT recyclable. Please place these in your trash bag for disposal.
