Clarksburg Board Confirms Closure of Public Buildings for Interim
The Clarksburg Select Board confirmed last week that it would keep town buildings closed to the public for the indefinite future.
iBerkshires.Com reports the board had held an emergency meeting to vote to close the buildings on Nov. 3, one day after Gov. Charlie Baker issued new orders reducing the number of people who could be indoors at private venues to 10. A number of other restrictions on gatherings and masks were made because of a sharp spike in transmission of COVID-19 in the state.
Board member Danielle Luchi echoed his sentiment, saying, "I agree to keep our last vote up until further notice."
Robert and Lauren Norcross, who have become involved in the Senior Center, objected that keeping the community/senior center closed was doing a disservice to the town's elderly.
Norcross said the center would limit numbers, ensure people were masked and had a cleaning protocol in place.
Norcross' point was that Clarksburg School has been open for in-person learning since September.
