Information is rapidly changing, and the Town of Sharon will continue to use this site to keep residents up-to-date as new information becomes available. Please refer to the tabs on the left for resources and information.

May 18 Update:
Town buildings remain closed to the public. During this time, town departments will continue to work on a reduced schedule to meet the essential needs of the community. The schedule for offices to be staffed is: Monday – Thursday from 8:30am – 5:00pm. We are working on a plan, based on guidance from state officials released today, to be able to safely reopen. Thank you for your continued patience.

Face Masks Required Effective 5/6/2020

Effective May 6, all residents over the age of two must use a face covering or mask in public places where maintaining proper social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are not possible. Read the Order here.

The Fire Department and the Board of Health have made masks available for Sharon residents who need one; they can be found in the vestibules at the Public Safety Building or at Town Hall. Please respect the limit per person. These masks are for short-term use; reusable cloth coverings are more appropriate. Learn how to make your own cloth face covering here.
 
Also, for those with challenges getting to either location, you can contact the Board of Health or the Fire Department to request assistance, or complete online assistance form.
