COVID-19 News

Turner's Board of Selectmen recognizes that all residents are doing their best to adjust to the COVID-19 virus outbreak.  In consideration of the health and safety of our residents and staff, please note the following changes now in effect.

Town Office - The Town Office is open but there is a four person occupancy limit in the lobby area - two persons at the counter, and two waiting.  All regular services are available.  Facemasks are required to enter the building.

November 3 General Election - The November 3 General Election will be held as scheduled, with the polls open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Masks must be worn, and there will be limits on the number of people that may be in the building at all times.  If a line forms, social distancing must be observed.  Individuals already on line when the polls close will be allowed to vote.  Nobody else may get on line after 8:00 p.m.  Please also keep watch here and on the town's Facebook page for up to date information on when and where these events will be scheduled.

Annual Town Meeting - Turner's Town Meeting and local referendum election, originally scheduled for April 3 and 4, is postponed.  The new dates will be announced once it is appropriate to do so - with ample notice.
