WEST HAVEN, March 16, 2020 — In response to COVID-19, the city has closed all municipal buildings and departments to the public for a minimum of two weeks, Mayor Nancy R. Rossi announced.
The local public health protocol, implemented to discourage the spread of the COVID-19 virus, includes all city and Board of Education offices at City Hall; the Chamber of Commerce and Department of Motor Vehicles Express offices at City Hall; and all city offices outside of City Hall.
For services offered at City Hall, city employees will work their normal weekday schedule from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and be available by phone and email. The phone numbers and email addresses of each department and employee are available at Staff Directory.
New departmental procedures are forthcoming, including how departments will handle payments for licenses, permits and taxes, as well as requests for beach parking stickers. The city will post information as it becomes available at Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Superintendent of Schools Neil C. Cavallaro announced that the school district has closed all public schools through Friday, March 27, and is planning to reopen Monday, March 30. The Child Development Center has also closed for a minimum of two weeks.
West Haven Library Executive Director Colleen Bailie announced that the library’s three branches have closed indefinitely.
City officials, led by Rossi, Cavallaro and Health Director Maureen B. Lillis, plan to reevaluate the emergency directive at the end of two weeks and determine whether to reopen the buildings, departments and schools at that time.
