City Services & Closures during COVID-19
Nashua City Hall will fully reopen to the public on Monday, June 7.
For the past year, throughout the pandemic, all essential city services have remained available to residents by way of regular mail, dropbox, online and by phone, as well as limited entry into City Hall for some departments. With the full reopening of City Hall, all departments offering in-person services will accept walk-in customers and those with appointments during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (hours may differ among departments for some services).
Mayor Jim Donchess, along with public health and emergency management officials continue to monitor and respond to the COVID-19 virus. Safety protocols and helpful signage are in place for members of the public who enter City Hall, including that individuals who are not vaccinated are encouraged to wear a face mask for the protection of others. The City of Nashua has rescinded its mask ordinance, so individuals who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear a face mask.
City Hall Construction
Nashua City Hall is currently under construction. Improvements are being made to enhance the health and safety of residents and city employees. Construction will continue through the month of June. Residents entering City Hall are asked to enter through either the front or back door to the building (Elm Street entrance), follow instructions on signage and to be mindful of construction areas.
Residents who have made appointments with a department can enter City Hall and proceed to the proper department at their scheduled time.

The Nashua Police Department, in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, has made minor modifications to their normal operations. Nashua Police will continue to respond to every emergency call as normal. The Nashua Police will be postponing business transactions until further notice. Nashua PD personnel will be asking additional screening questions during their public interactions. Officers will ask citizens to step outside when it is necessary to speak in person. If face-to-face contact is not necessary, an officer may contact you via phone. Whenever possible, we are asking the public to please contact the Nashua Police Department at 594-3500 for all non-emergency calls rather than responding to the agency in person. The public should continue to call 911 for an emergency.
Nashua Fire Rescue is suspending all non-essential support services, which include, but are not limited to burning permits and fire prevention tours/activities. Public access is limited to all Fire Rescue buildings and focused on maintaining our operational readiness.

We are committed to the health and safety of our employees, their families and ALL citizens of Nashua. We implore all to use common sense and common curtesy during this uncommon event.
