Press release: Ned Lamont has formally announced plans for the state to conform its coronavirus safety protocols to the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention where a mask will no longer be required outside in Connecticut, and only those not vaccinated against COVID-19 will be required to wear masks indoors. "If you have not yet been vaccinated, I strongly recommend that you get vaccinated as soon as possible. Dozens of clinics across Connecticut no longer require appointments to receive a vaccination, and it has never been easier to get one," Lamont said.

Per Governor Lamont’s announcement the Chaplin Board of Selectmen have decided to open the Town Hall to walk in traffic starting on Monday, May 24th during the normal business hours of Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday 9am to 3 pm and Tuesdays from 1pm to 7pm, closed Fridays. We ask that if you have not been vaccinated to please wear a mask per CDC guidelines in all Town of Chaplin buildings.

Even though Town Hall will be fully open for walk in traffic it is recommended that residents who plan to meet with any of the Tuesday evening land use staff such as Zoning, Building Inspector, Wetlands Agent and Tax Assessor that it would be in your best interest to make an appoint instead of just walking in. Our experience of requiring appointments during the Covid pandemic has taught us that it saves a great deal of time. For example If you just walk in to see to the Zoning agent and he has 3 residents ahead of you then you very well may end up waiting a long time to see him. This first come first served system can create an overcrowding in our small lobby, increases your exposure and wastes your valuable time. Also keep in mind that the Building inspector and the Tax Assessor are available 40 hours per week by appointment for inspections or in person meetings at the Windham Town Hall, Monday through Friday. Please go to the department webpages for further details, phone numbers and hours of operation.

The Chaplin Library is open during their regular hours. Since the library serves both adults and children, the current guidelines recommend face masks be worn by all patrons. Curbside service is still available. Requests can be made via phone or email.

The Chaplin Senior Center will continue to be closed to walk in traffic until further notice but is continuing to serve curbside meals and offer limited outdoor activities. The reopening of the Senior Center is expected to be announced soon.

The transfer station will continue with its regular schedule of being open every Saturday from 9am to 4pm with the addition of the Swap Shop which will reopen on Saturday May 22nd. No Masks are required but are a personal choice for outdoor activities. 

The Chaplin Fire House will continue to be closed for private rentals until further notice.
