PRINCETON – Princeton has extended the closure of its two municipal buildings to the public until March 27 to help stem the spread of COVID-19, Princeton officials announced on March 20.
Princeton has two municipal buildings: Monument Hall, which is the former Princeton Borough Hall, and Witherspoon Hall, which is the former Princeton Township Municipal Building.
Princeton officials announced on March 17 that the two buildings would be closed through March 20, but decided to extend the closure for one more week. Essential employees were expected to report to work.
Princeton is not the only town that has closed its municipal building to the public.
