Somerville's Response to COVID-19
Our goal in Somerville is to do our very best to support and keep everyone safe during this COVID-19 pandemic. We want you to have all the information you need because by understanding what COVID-19 is, how it is spread, and what you can can do to prevent it from spreading, we can each do our part to keep our family, friends, and neighbors safe.
Some of the steps already taken toward keeping COVID-19 away from our community include changes made to the way we conduct business at our Town Office. These changes incorporate CDC recommended COVID-19 prevention measures including keeping appropriate distance between staff and those conducting business, wearing and requiring masks, frequent sanitizing of surfaces and tools. Changes have also been made toward utilizing COVID-19 prevention measures during Town Meetings and during election activities.
We made and distributed informational brochures to Somerville businesses (there are more than you think!) These brochures provide guidance for understanding requirements of the State of Maine guidelines on how to operate while keeping Maine residents and visitors as safe as possible from COVID-19.
We are providing information we hope you can use via links on this newly re-designed website. And if you have suggestions to make it better - please contact our Town Clerk.
Somerville was awarded financial assistance in this endeavor through a grant from the State of Maine’s Keep Maine Healthy 2020 Municipal COVID-19 Awareness Campaign. That funding has covered most of the cost of the steps we’ve taken to protect townspeople and arm businesses with information to comply with State guidelines.
