EASTON, Pa. – Easton has shut down city hall again amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Mayor Sal Panto Jr. issued an order closing the building Thursday. He cited several workers infected with COVID-19, as well as several others who were exposed and are now in quarantine.

Residents and business owners wishing to pay bills or parking tickets in person can do so only between noon and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Instead, city officials encourage paying bills and fees online through the payment center on the Easton website.

The order did not indicate when the building might reopen to the public or specifically how many employees were affected by the virus.
