On June 5, MIIA led a webinar for the Small Town Administrators of Massachusetts on safety protocols for returning to town buildings and resuming operations.

MIIA Member Services Manager Lin Chabra and Risk Manager Maureen Montanus discussed the procedures and safety protocols that all communities should follow as they open town halls to staff and visitors and return to “regular” operations in all departments.

Laura Kittross, executive director of Berkshire County Boards of Health, addressed some of the common issues expected, including how to social distance, face coverings, and maintaining hygiene protocols.

The Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association is the MMA’s nonprofit insurance service.

More than 75 local officials participated in the webinar.
