Tyrone Town Manager Brandon Perkins emailed citizens May 13 to notify them the town is “getting back up and running” with offices opening to the public May 18.

Here’s his email:

“Our facilities were closed to the public and our staff began working from home in mid-March due to Covid-19. This measure allowed us to keep our employees and our citizens safe during this historic pandemic and we believe our staff has done a great job conducting the business of the Town and moving us forward under these modified conditions.

“It was a good test of our continuity of operations capability and it’s great to know that we have the infrastructure in place to make this work if the need ever arises again. But the time has come to reset and get back to the office — as safely as possible, of course.

“Town Hall, the Police Department/Municipal Court, the Recreation Center, and all parks and playgrounds (with the exception of the basketball court) will be back open to the public beginning Monday, May 18 at 8 a.m.

“Our Library is offering curbside service — see their Facebook page for details!

“Employees and visitors to any of our offices will have their temperature checked upon entering and no one with a fever will be allowed to remain inside.

“Employees and visitors will also be required to practice social distancing within our facilities and masks are encouraged.

“While we are open and here to serve you, we ask that you still consider calling, emailing, or using our website before making a trip to one of our facilities to do business with us at this time.
