Madison currently has 141 confirmed positive cases of the virus; 44 cases are active, with 35 of these associated with a skilled nursing facility. While the state continues to see downward trends in overall metrics, please remember that we still need to maintain our vigilance in preventing the spread of this disease in our town.
Last week we entered into the first phase of the state’s re-opening plan, which included retail stores and outdoor dining. It was great to see so many shop doors open on our main street over the weekend. Starting June 20th, the second phase of the re-opening plan is expected to launch; that will include summer camps, gyms, youth sports, pools, movie theaters, indoor dining, outdoor arts and events for up to 50 people, and others. More details on state directives and business guidance on this phase will be forthcoming. If you are a local business with questions about any requirements, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the town by sending us an email at Reopenmadison@madisonct.org.
Starting this week, beach parking stickers can be purchased in-person exclusively at the Surf Club office, not at Town Campus. Please make sure you bring proof of residency and your car registration with you. We expect to offer on-line sales through the Beach & Recreation website by June 15th. Beach parking stickers will be required to park at all three beaches starting June 20th. The department is also finalizing its summer programming so that it meets state guidelines, and expects to offer enrollment starting June 1st. More details will be available at https://www.madisonct.org/recreation.
Starting June 1st, Madison’s Town Campus offices will be open to the public by appointment only. Details on how to set-up an appointment can be found on the town website, but residents are still encouraged to conduct business on-line when possible. Drop boxes will also be available for residents use outside the main entrance of Town Hall for different town departments. And starting next week, the Town Brush & Leaf Facility will be open to commercial contractors. Credit cards and checks will be accepted as payment at the gate.
For those families who are struggling financially, I want to remind you that due to the generosity of the Madison Foundation’s Neighbor to Neighbor Fund, Madison Youth and Family Services has a special COVID assistance program. Any adult or youth (64 years old or younger) can call for details on the program at (203) 245-5645 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, I just want to say thank you to those residents who continue to prioritize the protection of our community by staying home when possible, limiting social gatherings to groups of 5 or less, and wearing a mask in public when near others. We are all in this together; please stay safe, healthy and at home Madison.
