UPDATE: May 18, 2020. The Town Manager modified his Town Building Closure Order of March 25, 2020 to permit public meetings in Town Buildings, as posted in accordance with the Open Meeting Law.


March 25, 2020

On March 25, 2020 the Town of Holden was notified by the Central Massachusetts Regional Public Health Alliance (CMRPHA) that two residents have tested positive for the Corona virus (COVID-19).

Public health nurses and staff are working closely with the patients and will notify others who may have been in contact with them. CMRPHA will continue to work with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to ensure any affected residents are properly monitored, quarantined and isolated as each case dictates.

The Worcester Regional Health Alliance maintains a COVID-19 information line for residents to call at 508-799-1019. If you have questions for the CMRPHA that you would like to place via email, they can be reached at [email protected].

Town Building Closure

Out of an abundance of caution in response to efforts to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all town buildings, with the exception of the public safety building, will be closed to public access until further notice.  Town offices will remain staffed and can be reached by telephone and email.  Virtually all town forms, permits, applications and services can be accessed online at or by telephone for individual departments.  Town Manager Peter Lukes would like to assure everyone that all town government functions will continue uninterrupted. We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this trying time.
