SHERMAN — A week after implementing visitor restrictions for Mallory Town Hall, town officials decided to close the building entirely amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.

First Selectman Don Lowe announced Friday afternoon that the municipal building on Route 39 will be closed until further notice to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Many of the offices will be working remotely checking emails during this period,” Lowe said.

Town hall department contact information, building permit forms and other documents are available on the town’s website,
