Public Notice | Litchfield Face Mask Mandate to Remain in Effect

Public Notice
Face Mask Mandate to Remain in Effect 
Released by Litchfield Board of Selectmen – April 16, 2021

Although Governor Sununu’s statewide face mask mandate expires today, the town’s face mask mandate remains in effect. Private businesses, organizations and cities and towns retain authority to require customers and residents to wear face masks. The safety and protection of town employees and residents remains a top priority for the Board of Selectmen at a time when community transmission of the COVID-19 virus is still very active. The Board of Selectmen will conduct an emergency meeting on Monday, April 19, 2021 at 7:00 pm to discuss keeping the town’s face mask mandate in place until at least May 3, 2021 to allow time to fully vaccinate most town employees. The Selectmen want to reopen town facilities but, at the same time, keep its employees and their family members protected and safe. Please remember the best way to protect yourself and your community is to wear a face mask, practice social distancing and avoid large gatherings.

The Town of Litchfield will hold its election of officers and consideration of Town and School warrants on March 9th, 2021, at the Campbell High School Gymnasium from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM.  

As we are still under restriction for COVID, Governor Christopher T. Sununu has issued Emergency Order #83 (EO83) authorizing the use of absentee ballots.  EO83 authorizes the issuance of absentee ballots for individuals who have a concern for exposure to COVID.  It anticipates that individuals may wish to not enter a polling place and to utilize an absentee ballot to vote in their vehicles from the parking lot.  If you are not a registered voter, you may also register from your vehicle and obtain a ballot by calling the same phone number.

During the March 9th, 2021, Town and School election, you may obtain an absentee ballot or register to vote by calling the number listed above from your vehicle in the Campbell High School parking lot.  An election staff member will come to your vehicle and process your request.  Please try to stand beside your vehicle or make yourself and location known so that Election Staff may more easily find you.  

Should you have any questions on this please contact Town & School Moderator at fbyron@litchfieldnh.gov.

Please come out to vote on March 9th.
