Beginning today, Monday, May 11th, 2020, Bristol Town Hall will resume its in-person services for the public. Over the past two weeks, Town Hall has undergone interior renovations to limit exposure.

In addition to the new physical barriers, Town is implementing the following additional safety protocols:

  • All persons entering Town Hall must wear a cloth face-covering mask per RIDOH regulations and active executive orders. Individuals will not be serviced without a face covering.
  • All persons should remain at least six (6) feet apart at all times. Markings have been placed along the floor to indicate proper spacing between individuals.
  • One-way foot traffic has been instituted inside a majority of Town Hall’s public area to help more individuals avoid coming into close contact with others as they conduct their business.
  • Hand sanitizer has been made available at all entryways, service counters, and public workspaces for individuals.
  • All high-touch, high-traffic areas will undergo increased cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day per CDC guidelines.
