For the continued protection of the public and City employees, masks will continue to be required inside all City buildings until further notice.

This requirement applies to both the public and employees, as reflected in the City’s “Safe Workplace and Reopening Policy 4.” City buildings include, but are not limited to, City Hall, City Hall Annex, the Mayor Jean Levesque Community Life Center, the Salem Public Library, Salem Police headquarters, Salem Fire headquarters and stations, the Museum Place and South Harbor garages, Old Town Hall, and buildings at all City parks. Masks are only required indoors in these locations.

The Salem Public Library will reopen to the public on June 1st for the following hours: Monday – Thursday 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., closed Sundays.

The Mayor Jean Levesque Community Life Center will begin transitioning programs to its indoor spaces gradually over the coming weeks. When registering for a program you will be notified if it is indoors or outdoors. Public areas in the building, including the lounge, pool room, fitness room, and library, will reopen June 1st. Congregate meals will not resume until later in June. Offices are open for social work and veterans’ services appointments and for routine business such as parking stickers and passes.

Masks are required when inside both the library and the CLC, and please follow all posted guidance and signage to ensure a safe experience for all.
