Covid-19 Information


Massachusetts Department of Public Health Face Covering Advisory - Issued July 30th, 2021
The Department of Public Health has issued a new mask advisory in light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s updated guidance. 

Fully vaccinated individuals are advised to wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home) if:
  • You have a weakened immune system
  • You are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition
  • Someone in your household has a weakened immune system
  • Someone in your household is at increased risk for severe disease
  • Someone in your home is unvaccinated
  • If you live, work, or are traveling in an area with substantial or high community transmission of COVID-19
Masks are still 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.
