Coronavirus Information
The Town of Elkton continues to closely monitor the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and the latest information and recommendations from local, state and federal emergency
management agencies.  For more information please click on the CDC link below.


Opening of EACC Delayed to July 20
After meetings with the Elkton Area Community Center Advisory Board and town council,
the preliminary decision was to open the Community Center on July 6.  This date has now
been postponed until at least July 20.  With the recent spike in COVID-19 cases both
nationally and locally the decision was made that opening the center at this time
would pose a substantial health risk to our residents and staff.  We are disappointed
that the community cannot yet get back to the activities, events and relationships at the EACC which they enjoy so much.  However, we must place safety as our top priority.  We will continue to communicate information on the plan for EACC re-opening as well as the latest on other town activities and events which are effected by COVID-19.  

The safety and well being of our community members, staff and patrons of our community are our top priority.  We appreciate the tremendous cooperation, understanding and teamwork of our town residents, businesses and staff thus far. 


Closings and Cancellations
The Elkton Area Community Center (EACC) is currently closed to residents and visitors until further notice.  All events and meetings scheduled to take place at the EACC are cancelled through the month of June.  We will continue to post closings and cancellations on the town website and social media.

Town Parks: The town of Elkton would like to keep our outdoor facilities open as long as possible, however, in order to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19 we have taken certain steps to protect the public.

Town Government and Operations
All essential functions of the Elkton Town Government will continue. 

Police: The Elkton Police Department will continue to respond to emergency and essential calls throughout this COVID-19 event.  If you have an emergency, please call 911.  Regular traffic and community patrols will continue as well.  In order to protect our officers and help limit the spread of this virus, most non-emergency calls will be handled via telephone.  For non-emergencies, please call

Town administrative staff are working at home when feasible and coming in to the office to take care of essential items.  All town departments will be answering emails and returning phone calls throughout the COVID-19 event. 


Utility customers:  It should be noted, customers may still pay their utility bills by utilizing the drop box out front of the Community Center, by paying at First Bank (on or before the due date), by calling 1-844-269-2736, or paying online at  There will be limited staff in the building, however, we will be checking the mail and drop box daily.
We will provide updates on our Facebook page- Town of Elkton, Virginia, and on our website- as we have new information.

Thank you all as we will continue to work together throughout this COVID-19 event!
