City of Takoma Park facilities will be closed to the public for two weeks due to the Covid-19 public health emergency.


As we continue to navigate the rapidly evolving situation, the city is proceeding with an abundance of caution in the face of the current public health crisis.

Consistent with the actions of the State of Maryland and Montgomery County, City of Takoma Park facilities, including City offices, the Library and the Takoma Park Recreation Center, will be closed to the public from 7:00 pm Friday, March 13, 2020, through Sunday, March 29, 2020.

Police emergency services and public works services will continue, and City staff that can work remotely will do so. During this time, most meetings, classes, and events are canceled as are rentals of City facilities.

City Council meetings will continue to be held if possible — we will keep you informed.

As mentioned by Governor Hogan and County Executive Elrich, the situation is changing daily. We will work to keep you informed through all communication channels.

As the news about coronavirus (Covid-19) echoes throughout the world, our thoughts are with those impacted in our community, nationally and globally. The health and safety of our residents, businesses, and staff is our top priority.

Please check our website frequently, and consult the CDC and the Montgomery County Health Department regarding Covid-19 and effective public health measures you can take.

It’s going to be a difficult few weeks ahead, but we will get through this together!
