Although Town buildings will be closed to the public, staff will continue to work. Residents seeking services or having questions may contact Town departments directly. Many Town services can be provided over e-mail, by phone, or by mail. Residents are also able to use the Town website for many services: https://www.town.medfield.net/.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Board of Selectmen’s office by phone at 508-906-3012 or by e-mail to Town Administrator Kristine Trierweiler at ktrierweiler@medfield.net.

Town officials would like to thank the public for their understanding during this challenging time for our community. The situation involving COVID-19 continues to evolve and Town officials remain in close contact with state officials, the Board of Health, and the Town’s Emergency Management Director to share information and guidance. These building closings are intended to help employees and the public practice social distancing, a tactic aimed at helping stop the spread of COVID-19. At this time, there remains no indication of community spread of coronavirus in Medfield.
The Town website will be the best place to stay up to date on local information and we created a page dedicated to COVID-19 information:

https://www.town.medfield.net/1860/CoronavirusInfo-COVID-19

The Town recently converted to a new emergency notifications application (CivicReady). Due to the evolving situation with COVID-19, we moved up the roll-out of this new service. Residents can create an account to receive alerts and notifications here:

Any residents who are having issues with signing up can contact Nicholas Milano, Assistant Town Administrator, at nmilano@medfield.net or by phone at 508-906-3009.
