Caribou city office closed to general public due to possible COVID exposure

CARIBOU, Maine — The city of Caribou announced via social media on Oct. 7 that, effective immediately, interaction with the public will be limited and the city office will be closed to public  access due to a potential COVID-19 exposure in the city clerk’s office. 

In the meantime, anyone needing to take care of business will be able to interact with the clerk’s office via drop box located in the Caribou Police Department in the lower part of the building.

Caribou City Clerk Danielle Brissette said that as of Oct. 7 no individuals in the city office are showing any signs of COVID-19, and that this is being done in an effort to err on the side of caution. 

The measures will be similar to the limitations imposed in March of this year, and effective until all employees with potential exposure have been tested.

Brissette said testing is being lined up for city staff starting on Oct. 8.
