Receive Updates on Coronavirus

The Town of Arlington is committed to keeping residents and businesses informed on it's doing, and what you can do, to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. We have created a Coronavirus information page with many resources. During the week, we'll be posting daily updates at 5:00 p.m. These updates will be sent to Town of Arlington Notices (email) and on social media (Facebook and Twitter). We strongly encourage everyone to be signed up to multiple communication channels to ensure they receive this important information. With more residents relying on the Internet, we may experience technical difficulties. The three communication channels we recommend are:

- Arlington Alerts
- Town of Arlington Notices
- Social Media
