Mashpee Police are taking precautions to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
A notice on the department’s website asks the public “to refrain from visiting the station with the exception of emergencies requiring them to be there” in order to “maintain the utmost safety for our citizens and our employees.”
The notice also asks the public to refrain from donating any food or drink to the department.
In the event that a call requires a police response, the notice asks that the caller inform the dispatcher taking the call if anyone at the site of the call is currently sick.
The department has suspended all firearms application and licensing.
Captain Thomas Rose said that the police are minimizing public contacts as much as possible but continue to respond to all emergency calls.
