Hello to all! The following is the new masking advisory that went in to effect today, August 31, 2021 at 5 PM:
A public health advisory, while not a mandate, is a recommendation from public health officials that masking continue in indoor spaces when not eating or drinking.
- Masks are advised indoors where social distancing cannot be achieved.
- All unvaccinated individuals, including children under the age of 12, are required to wear masks both outdoors in crowded areas where social distancing cannot be achieved and in public indoor spaces, per CDC guidelines.
- Masks remain mandatory for all individuals on public and private transportation systems (including rideshares, livery, taxi, ferries, MBTA, Commuter Rail and transportation stations), in healthcare facilities and in other settings hosting vulnerable populations, such as congregate care settings.
Many people will continue to wear a mask, and we ask that those choosing not to wear a mask respect the decision of others to wear one, and we also ask those that continue to wear a mask respect the decision of those who decide not to wear one.
COVID will continue to be with us for quite some time, and it’s important that people assess their own personal risk as they make the best decision for themselves and the people around them.
We appreciate your cooperation.
Bob, Dan, Bizzo, Pat & Jerome
