Facemasks available for Middlebury businesses

Chief Tom Hanley

MIDDLEBURY — In his Emergency Management update to the Middlebury selectboard Tuesday evening, Police Chief Tom Hanley reported that a supply of cloth masks provided by the state is now available to Middlebury businesses for customer use.
Better Middlebury Partnership (BMP) Director Karen Duguay is the point of contact for distribution.
Hanley said the police department will also be distributing masks to local childcare facilities to supplement their own supplies and that masks are available to the general public. Citizens may simply stop by the PD facility at 1 Lucius Shaw Lane to request a mask.
In his wrap up of the meeting, Assistant Town Manager Chris English said that Hanley also reported Middlebury College is putting together “compliance teams” that will be working daily around the campus between 2 p.m. and 2 a.m. to monitor compliance with the rules the college has put in place regarding the pandemic. The teams will be in close communication with the Middlebury Police Department in the event issues arise off-campus.
“Tom said that a reporting structure is now in place with the college that will ensure immediate investigation into complaints regarding alleged protocol violations, with follow-up to the town,” English reported. “He noted that police investigations revealed that recent reports of two large off-campus parties proved to be unfounded. He also said and that there have been no substantiated reports of off-campus violations since students began returning to the campus in May.”
