Downtown Wilmington Updates

 Businesses are excited to be able to open their doors again!

Please be understanding of requirements and restrictions, and know that there are no restrooms currently open for public use.

Facial coverings are required in all Wilmington businesses, and public buildings, starting Friday May 22. The text of the Select Board Resolution is HERE. The Rotary and other volunteers have been sewing fabric masks and will make them available at local businesses as well as on the picket fence in front of Norton House.

If you are visiting the area but need to stay at your home due to the 14-day quarantine requirement, local businesses can deliver what you might need, or have it ready to drop in your trunk with no contact -- they would be happy to make arrangements!
