The Town is continuing to balance the health and safety of residents and staff with the ability to meet community needs during this unprecedented pandemic. Town services must continually adapt as new state regulations and information come to light, and the following summarize the most recent changes:

Playgrounds, Athletic Fields, and Dog Park CLOSED - Per the Governor's latest order restricting gatherings of 5 or more, the Town has CLOSED the playgrounds, athletic fields (e.g. basketball, tennis), pavilions, dog park, and other areas that encourage such congregating. This includes youth sports practices.  Town parks and golf courses remain open at this time, however residents are encouraged to stay home, stay safe, and stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Dial-A-Ride SUSPENDED - For the health and safety of staff and riders, all Dial-A-Ride services have been SUSPENDED until further notice. Please contact Senior Services for alternate assistance with transportation as needed at (860) 652-7638

Food Bank Available for Residents in Need - Residents in need of food or other daily essential are encouraged to contact Social Services, which can be done confidentially by calling (860) 652-7638 or socialservices@glastonbury-ct.gov.

Food Bank DONATIONS Now Accepted Online - To help support our neighbors in need, Glastonbury Social Services has begun accepting donations to the Food Bank through PayPal for resident convenience. Please visit www.glastonbury-ct.gov/foodbank for more information or to make a contribution. (Check donations are still welcome and appreciated as well.)   

For the foreseeable future, Town services will continue to adapt to Governor orders and other factors and all updates will be posted to the town website as soon as they are available.
