At their meeting on May 27, the Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to resume pre-COVID operations and services effective May 31, 2021.  

When the Governor declared a disaster declaration and mandated COVID mitigation requirements in March, 2020, Hampden Township modified its operations to protect the safety of the public and the staff.  While all essential services were offered by the Township during the past 15 months, they were completed in a modified manner.  

All Township staff continued to physically report to their place of work each day however buildings were not open to the public.  Interaction with residents and business owners was completed via phone and various electronic means of communication and, as needed, brief meetings outdoors.  

Township meetings were held remotely while still allowing public participation in those meetings.  Other measures were also taken to modify normal business practices to ensure social distancing requirements were met while still providing all levels of service to the community.

On May 31, 2021, the Governor will no longer mandate social distancing requirements.  Therefore, Hampden Township’s buildings will reopen to the public during regular business hours.  Township meetings will also resume being held in-person and will be open to the public.  All services provided before the COVID pandemic will resume without social distancing restrictions.  Residents and business owners are reminded that if an individual is not fully vaccinated, they are still required, and respectfully asked, to wear a mask while visiting Township offices or attending public meetings.

The Board of Commissioners thanks all residents and business owners for cooperating with the Township while it was required to meet the directives on safe social distancing due to COVID-19.  Collectively, the community came together to support each other.  The Board of Commissioners is also very pleased to say on May 31, Hampden Township is fully open to business and normal operations again.
