City Operations during COVID-19

EFFECTIVE AUGUST 23, 2021 - The wearing of masks or cloth face coverings that are compliant with CDC guidelines is required in any private indoor business, and in any places of employment, where social distancing is impractical, unlikely, or difficult to maintain within the City of Norwich, except when eating or drinking until October 22, 2021 unless terminated sooner. 
The coronavirus pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges for our nation, our state, and our community.  As a result, we want to share how the City has modified our normal operations to work through this crisis to keep our citizens safe while continuing to provide vital services.
