Adams officials are studying the governor's reopening plans, analyzing how best to implement them and how they fit into the local government framework, according to Town Administrator Jay Green.

But one thing Green is sure of:  The reopening will be slow and deliberately cautious, with no changes happening with town facilities before June 1.

He said town staff would be meeting in the first week of June to figure out how to start resuming operations and still minimize the risk of infection. He estimated that some staff would be coming back to work and city facilities opening to the public — with social distancing and face coverings — toward the end of June.

Meanwhile, town staff will be analyzing the governor's phased reopening plans and determining how best to implement a slow opening for offices, retail and industrial spaces, eateries and schools.
