Mask Guidance

  • As has been our practice, we continue to follow MA Department of Public Health (DPH) COVID-19 guidance.  
  • Right now, we are recommending the following for municipal facilities in line with the current DPH protocols.
  • Fully vaccinated individuals are advised to wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home):

a.  if you have a weakened immune system,

b.  if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or 

c.  if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is an unvaccinated adult.

  • All unvaccinated residents are advised to continue to wear masks in indoor settings and when they can’t socially distance.
  • We are continuing to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and our Health Department remains in constant contact with DPH.
