The Duxbury Board of Health voted in favor 5-0 to amend the Policy on Close Contacts that was voted on at the Board of Health meeting on October 23, 2020 to allow low and moderate risk level sports as defined by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs ( EEA) to follow the CDC definition of close contacts. High Risk Level sports shall still continue to follow the Duxbury Board of Health Policy on Close Contacts that includes anyone participating as a player or coach in an indoor or outdoor sporting activity that has been exposed during the course of a game or practice to another participant or coach, either on the same or competing team, who has tested positive or developed COVID-19 symptoms within 48 hours of a game or practice, irrespective of maintaining social distancing of 6 feet for 15 minutes.
This policy was voted by the Duxbury Board of Health on October 23, 2020 and amended on March 25, 2021 and shall remain in effect until such time the Board deems it no longer necessary.
On Monday, April 5, Town Hall and Old Town will re-open to the general public allowing foot traffic back into the offices.
The following measures are being taken and will be in place upon re-opening:
Masks will be required of all patrons visiting the offices at all times
Visitors will be required to maintain a social distance of six feet (6’) from other persons. Floors have been marked with decals indicating proper social distance.
No more than ten (10) visitors may be on a floor at any time. Keeping count of the number of patrons visiting Town Hall will be up to both the patrons and the staff to help ensure compliance.
For those offices where patrons may need to sign documents, if they do not have a pen of their own, each office will keep a set of “clean” pens for their use and wipe them down after each use.
If an in person visit is not viable at this time, every department will continue to conduct business virtually via phone, email, internet, US Mail. As necessary, most departments are available by appointment on a case-by-case basis. Until further notice public meetings for some boards and committees (such as Board of Selectmen and Finance Committee), are being conducted virtually utilizing remote meeting technology. Some land use boards and committees, as allowed under a State Act, are not holding public hearings at this time as public hearings have different requirements than public meetings. If you have any questions, please contact the appropriate department, board or committee for more information regarding services, meetings and schedules.
