FAIRFIELD, NJ — Daily operations at the Fairfield municipal building, recreation center and library have been modified “in an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and in an abundance of caution to the public and municipal employees,” Mayor James Gasparini announced on Sunday.

Effective immediately and lasting until March 30, Gasparini advises residents that there will be limited access to all buildings, although the buildings will remain open and business will be conducted in the vestibule of each building by the appropriate person.

Near the front entrance to all buildings, a sign will be posted with a phone number to call for access. The municipal building will only be accessed from the entrance located near the police trailers. No one will be permitted to access any other part of the buildings at this time.

“This procedure is to protect the continuity of the government in order to be able to operate and provides services to the public,” said Gasparini.“Please remember to do your part as recommended by the CDC and together we will continue to mitigate the spread of this virus.”
