Coronavirus Updates

Ordinance Subcommittee Canceled

The Ordinance Subcommittee Meeting for 2/23 has been canceled.

COVID Vaccine Info

If you are 75+ and are already on a waiting list for the vaccine,  you will be contacted with a slot as doses are made available.

This form serves as a means for residents of all ages from Cumberland to pre-register for a COVID-19 vaccination. Filling out this form does not mean that you have been registered for an appointment. You will be contacted when doses are available in accordance with state guidelines.

PLEASE NOTE: The State of RI is currently supplying each City and Town with an extremely limited number of doses each week, and the Town of Cumberland has no control over this process. It may be several weeks or more before you are contacted to schedule your vaccination. The State may also change this procedure in the future, and we will update our website accordingly.

Message to the Town of Cumberland

Upon the advice of Governor Gina Raimondo and the Rhode Island Department of Health, I have determined that extraordinary measures must be taken to reduce the spread of the Covid-19.

At this time, Town Hall is opened to the public by appointment ONLY. Hours will be from 9 to 12 and 1 to 4.  Anyone entering the building will be asked to sign in and wear a mask/face-covering. A drop box located at the ADA ramp entrance on the side of Town Hall is available to accept payments and to process requests for information.

If there is anything our office can do to be of service to you, please contact my Community Outreach Coordinator, Sarah King at 401-728-2400 x132.

We appreciate your patience during this challenging time. I firmly believe that we are better together. Our collective strengths as individuals and as a town will see us through this crisis.

Be well.

Thank you,

Mayor Jeff Mutter
