Dear Shirley Residents:
On Thursday, Nov. 12, Town officials were notified by a representative from the state Department of Public Health that the Town of Shirley has moved into the “Red” category. The current color-coding system classifies any community with a population under 10,000 and more than 25 cases as a “Red” community. The number of cases in Shirley as of Nov. 12 is 43; a large number of positive cases are related to the state correctional facility located on Shirley property.
As a result, of the “Red” status, the Town of Shirley is closing all Town-operated buildings to the general public until further notice. We will remain open to the public for in-person business this Monday, Nov. 16, and Tuesday, Nov. 17.
At this time, all Town employees will continue to report to work and departments will remain open. Town officials intend to maintain essential functions and services. The public can contact all departments by phone and e-mail.
The Shirley Senior Center will be closed to the general public starting this Monday, Nov. 16. However, Meals on Wheels and van service will remain operational for medical appointments and shopping. The service is limited to two persons per trip. Please call Director Marilyn Largey at 978-425-1390 or email her at email@example.com for more information.
The Town of Shirley requests that residents and other individuals seeking to conduct Town business do so remotely when possible — online, by phone, or through the mail. Individuals encountering time-sensitive situations that require immediate attention are advised to contact the appropriate department to determine if an accommodation can be made. Please see below for contact information.
Please be aware that residents may pay bills online by clicking “Pay Bills Online” in the Citizen Action Center on the Town’s home page, or by mailing checks directly to:
Town of Shirley
P.O. Box 986500
Boston MA 02298-6500
Also, there is a secure drop box outside of the entrance to the Town Offices where bills or other documents can be delivered. Please do not put cash in the drop box.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our residents; however, this is a necessary step in order to protect Shirley residents and staff, while still providing services to the public.
