In a Tuesday news release, RDBN said that social distancing is a key preventative measure in reducing the spread of the virus.

Public access for officials will be limited to electronic communications via phone and email.

Transfer Stations, Recycling Depots and Landfills will remain open to the public, with expectation that guidelines for social distancing are adhered to by patrons of these facilities to keep staff and the public safe, RDBN wrote in the March 17 news release.
