New Bedford city government to reopen to the public
As part of the ongoing reopening process across the city and state, New Bedford City Hall and other city buildings will return to normal business hours beginning Tuesday, June 15, in conjunction with the lifting of the state emergency in Massachusetts.
City Hall, libraries, and other city offices will reopen during their regular hours starting on Tuesday, June 15. City offices, including City Hall and elsewhere, will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Libraries will resume their regular hours, which vary by location.
For much of the past year, portions of the City government workforce have operated remotely due to the pandemic; employees will return to their usual in-person work schedules as well on June 15. Masks will still be required in public areas of buildings owned and operated by the City until June 30.
