All town buildings are closed to the public; although we are “open” for business. Many transactions can be completed online, and we are available via phone and email to assist during regular business hours. A full Town Directory can be found here. Parks, Playgrounds and Playing Fields are closed.
Following Governor Baker’s updated emergency order from March 31, ONLY designated businesses and organizations providing “COVID-19 Essential Services,” such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and restaurants offering take-out or pick up only remain open. All non-essential businesses, retailers, and organizations are closed to workers, customers and the public until Monday, May 4, 2020. See the COVID-19 Essential Business FAQs from the State.
Hopkinton Board of Health, Public Safety, School Department, and Emergency Management departments continue to closely monitor and prepare for Covid-19. We are working in collaboration with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH).
Hopkinton has created a Covid-19 Community Impact Dashboard to illustrate closings and general tracking numbers which include the ability to see trendlines over time. Link to dashboard: https://arcg.is/PyP0S
