City of Torrington closing offices indefinitely after Nov. 12 amid COVID-19 outbreak


Updated: Nov. 5 at 3:17 p.m. 

TORRINGTON – Torrington’s city facilities will be closing Nov. 12 and will remain closed until further notice due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in Torrington and Goshen County. Mayor Randy Adams asked the public to communicate with the city via phone, email, text or regular mail. Business can be conducted in person if it is necessary, but those needing to conduct in-person business must contact the city and schedule an appointment beforehand. 

Adams told The Telegram, “over the last week to two weeks, we have had several incidents in different departments where an individual, or an individual’s relative, has come down with a positive case.”

Adams believes much of the issues arising from the outbreak of COVID-19 in city hall began with people coming into their offices rather than avoiding contact and using city drop boxes. 

Adams said keeping city hall open is "putting our staff in jeopardy more than is necessary.” 

To conduct business with city facilities, visit www.torringtonwy.gov or call city hall at (307) 532-5666.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article said Torrington's city facilities would be closed, suggesting they were closing immediately. Torrington's city facilities will not be closing until Nov. 12. Our sincerest apologies for any confusion.
