Recognizing the importance of supporting local businesses during this challenging time, the town website features a community organizations and business updates page (https://www.hingham-ma.gov/863/COVID-19-Community-Notices).​

This information is provided as a public service during this state of emergency and is not an endorsement of any product, business, or program. ​

Per order of Gov. Charlie Baker, non-essential businesses are now temporarily closed, and while restaurants are prohibited from offering on-premises consumption, they are allowed to offer take-out and delivery services.​

"The health department is reaching out to food establishments, businesses, and the schools to ensure they understand [recent federal, state, and local coronavirus-related directives] in this changing landscape," Asst. Town Administrator Michelle Monsegur told the selectmen last night.​

Selectman Mary Power noted that among the Hingham restaurants offering takeout with curbside pickup and delivery is the Greenside Grille at the town-owned South Shore Country Club. ​

"We're all worried about our local businesses," said Selectmen Chairman Karen Johnson. "We know how upsetting and disruptive [this situation is] for them in particular and for all of us."​
