The city has announced more closures due to caution over the coronavirus.
Starting Monday, the city is canceling all recreation classes and facility rentals, as well as closing the Youth Activity Center (YAC) and the Tracks Activity Center (TAC), according to city spokesperson Bevin Handel.
Large gatherings have also been canceled through April 12.
These new cancellations come days after the city canceled group meal service for seniors, moving to meal pick ups, and closed the Joslyn Senior Center and the Blaisdell Senior Center out of an abundance of caution.
As of now, city offices will remain open for essential businesses, and police and sanitation service will continue as normal. But the city is still taking precautions.
“City management is working with staff to accommodate personal circumstances while ensuring city operations continue,” the city said. “Please be aware that services may be reduced due to impacts to staffing.”
Claremonters are asked to “consider the urgency of your business” and take into account whether that service can be done online or over the phone.
This is a fluid situation that can change as the days progress. Check back with the COURIER for up-to-the-date information about precautionary measures during the coronavirus pandemic.
