Seekonk Extends Municipal Building Closures


The Town of Seekonk extended its closure of all municipal buildings through February 11.

A message posted Thursday on the town website read: Due to COVID related staffing shortages, it is necessary to extend the closure of all municipal buildings until Friday, February 11, 2022. We anticipate opening our buildings to the public on Monday, February 14, 2022. Those needing to do business with town offices should contact the appropriate office by phone or email. For high priority and emergency business with the Town, in-person visits will be accommodated via appointments.

On January 4, all town offices were closed to the public. The Seekonk Public Library is also closed.

Town Administrator Shawn Cadime said 26 town employees were absent either because they tested positive for Covid or were in quarantine after receiving a positive test result.

Cadime insisted town officials have remained “proactive” and have worked “diligently” during the pandemic.

The department contact information is available on the Town’s website For those concerned about tax payments or dropping off documents, a drop box is located at the front door to Town Hall.
