Due to Brockton's designation as a "higher risk" community, effective tomorrow Saturday August 22, Mayor Robert F. Sullivan has ordered a Citywide curfew for all residents and visitors between the hours of 11 pm and 5 am with exceptions for essential travel. He is also closing the Harold D. Bent Playground at Ash Street Park; the James Edgar Playground; and the Nelson Playground (South Middle School) from the hours of 4 p.m. to 6 a.m. He has also created a City COVID-19 Enforcement team of public health and public safety officials to combat the spread of COVID-19 and alert individuals as to the urgency of health and safety precautions and has issued protocols for fines for violations of city and state orders.
The City of Brockton reminds residents of the Governor's orders to wear masks in public to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Effective today (June 25, 2020), all City playgrounds in Brockton are open per order of Mayor Robert F. Sullivan. Residents are asked to follow the guidelines posted about safety and social distancing. City playgrounds were previously closed in March due to COVID-19.

I encourage everyone who uses the public pool to do their part to ensure everyone stays healthy and safe during the Summer.
I remind residents of the Governor’s orders to wear masks in public to stop the spread of COVID-19. This order applies to both indoor and outdoor spaces especially where social distancing is not possible. Exceptions include children under the age of 2 and those unable to wear a mask or face covering due to a medical condition.

BOARD AND COMMITTEE MEETINGS
The Governor’s Executive Order suspended portions of the Open Meeting Law to allow for remote participation for boards and committees. The City is actively working to provide boards, committees and residents with remote capability that allows for participation at home.
