New Bedford City Government to Reopen Fully June 15
NEW BEDFORD — The New Bedford city government will return to its normal business hours as the state of emergency is lifted in Massachusetts on June 15.
According to a press release from Mayor Jon Mitchell's office, New Bedford City Hall and other city buildings will reopen to the public and government workers will return to their usual in-person work schedules that day.
Officials said that city offices including City Hall will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and that libraries will resume their regular hours, which vary by location.
Over most of the past year, many city government employees have worked remotely due to the pandemic.
Masks are still required in public areas of city buildings until June 30.
