Town of Thurmont Staffing Changes due to COVID-19


This morning Mayor Kinnaird met with senior management from the town to discuss changes to scheduling for town staff. Beginning tomorrow morning (Tuesday 3/24) we will be implementing a “skeleton staff” policy. Public Works and Administrative staff will have only 50% of their respective personnel working on any given day. Staff will alternate every other day and will be on call every other day. These changes are to limit the daily interaction among staff members and to reduce the risk of any spread of COVID-19 among our personnel. We will be implementing this policy for two weeks and will reassess at that time. Residents are asked to understand that this reduction in staffing may impact non-emergency responses, as well as telephone and e-mail responses from staff. As always, town staff will respond as quickly as conditions allow and emergency conditions will still be considered the highest of priorities and will be handled accordingly.

 Thank you.
