Town has received calls from residents who have expressed interest in volunteering. Right now, the most important thing residents can do is check on relatives, friends, and neighbors that are within the COVID-19 vulnerable population. This includes residents over the age of 60 or those with underlying medical conditions. If it’s determined that volunteers are needed the Town will make an announcement seeking assistance.
