COVID-19 Update

June 2, 2020 

On March 13, 2020, the Town of Laytonsville Town Hall was closed because of the Covid-19 virus crisis.  Our Town is contemplating the process of opening social-distancing guidelines and determining what actions are necessary to safeguard the public, residents and staff.  Many of you are undoubtedly wondering when we will once again be able to meet on a face to face basis.  I want you to know that that question is also on my mind and on the minds of the Council and Staff.  We have been discussing that topic and making some initial plans.

I cannot give you a timeline or firm details yet, because we are still awaiting further guidance from the State and County, but I think we can safely say that, just as for the rest of the society, the return of our normal activities to a new normal will be a process. Even when we are able to open the Town Hall, things will initially be very different than what we are used to. Various social distancing and other protective measures will be in place.  There may be limits on using Town facilities and there will undoubtedly be changes to our physical availability.  I am proud of the exceptional service that our staff have continuously provided to our citizens.  Beginning in April, we have utilized Zoom to reach our Council, staff and residents during this time of distancing.  It would be reasonable to expect virtual Town meetings to continue.

Thank you for being considerate and for your patience.  Please check the Town’s webpage for activities and information.

James A. Ruspi, Mayor
