The Town of Farmington is doing its very best to support and keep everyone safe during this COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to provide you with links and informational resources on State and federal websites to help our community members and our businesses through this difficult time.
Steps have been 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, requiring face coverings to be be worn, frequent sanitizing of surfaces and tools. Changes have also been made toward utilizing COVID-19 prevention measures during all Town Meetings and during election activities.
Farmington 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. This grant provided additonal funds to help protect townspeople and arm businesses with information to comply with State guidelines. Farmington residents were mailed COVID-19 information flyers, and COVID-19 information signs were printed and distributed to Farmington businesses. Also, your local Code Enforcement Officer is always available to answer question or address concerns that you may have.
