The following changes became effective June 2, 2020, to continue providing municipal services while also protecting members of our community and town employees by limiting contact and reducing the threat of exposure to COVID-19.  These plans are subject to change.

The Town Office will reopen to the public on June 2, 2020 with normal business hours under the following guidelines in accordance with the State of Maine CDC and OSHA safety recommendations:

            Only three parties will be allowed in the customer service area at one time to help maintain recommended social distancing unless more people are required to complete a transaction, or the individuals are related to each other. Please continue to use online services whenever possible, as this will cut down on potential wait time. When arriving at the Town Office call (207) 655-4742 x126 and you will be given direction on how to proceed based upon services requested. Signage will be installed to help provide instruction regarding our new office procedures. DO NOT use this number to call ahead.  We will not put your name on the list until you arrive.

               All patrons and staff will be required to wear face masks when in public service areas and when interacting with the public. Staff temperatures will be taken and recorded before work daily. Any staff member with elevated temperature or exhibiting any level of illness will not be permitted to work.  Each workstation will be equipped with hand sanitizer for patrons to use as desired and clean/dirty pen buckets.  A temporary protective barrier has been added to both counters in the front lobby and the Code Enforcement Assistant window for the safety of both our patrons and staff. A temporary additional service window will be installed in the front vestibule to provide an additional workstation and allow for minimal entry into the building.

            Regularly touched Town Office surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected three times daily. This will include, but is not limited to, door handles, hand sanitizer dispensers, pens, faucet handles, phones, workstations and counter surfaces. No public restrooms will be available at this time.

            Many services related to the Code Enforcement and/or Assessing Offices can be answered over the phone and via email. If in-person service is required, it will be done by appointment only by calling the office in advance, in order to limit unnecessary traffic in the building. 

            All forms of payment will continue to be accepted, however credit cards, ACH and checks are the preferred methods. Regularly replaced disposable gloves will be used for all transactions.

            All residents are encouraged to follow self-watch guidelines, seek medical care when necessary and stay at home if possible as the State of Maine is still under a Medical State of Emergency.   

            The public is encouraged to get information and updates via the town’s electronic sign, website, Facebook, and the RoadRunner newsletter.

 

All Town owned public places such as Raymond Beach and Veterans Memorial Park are open, including Tassel Top Park and Beach. We are asking that patrons practice proper social distancing by remaining 6 feet from others. 

 

This plan will be updated as needed. We appreciate your continued cooperation.

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available through your local health authority. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

 

  • Wash your hands frequently- Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
  • Maintain social distancing - Maintain at least 6 feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth - Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
  • Practice respiratory hygiene - Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately and wash your hands.
  • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early. Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. If you travel in public to get medical care wear a mask and avoid touching things to protect others from exposure to the virus.
  • Don't travel to area with known outbreaks.

These tips will help you and your family stay protected not only by the COVID-19 virus but also the flu and other diseases.

 

If you are in need of a fabric face mask, please contact the Raymond Health Officer (contact information below). Raymond has a generous citizen that has offered to make and donate masks to other Raymond residents.
