DALTON — The town will be closing several buildings to the public starting Monday due to a rise in the number of coronavirus cases.
Those buildings include Town Hall, the Senior Center, and Highway and Cemetery offices. All offices will remain staffed and available by both phone and email during normal business hours, the Dalton Police Department said in a Facebook post.
