Face Covering Administrative Directive for Town Buildings

As a result of the increase in COVID-19 cases, including the highly contagious delta variant, the Board of Health now recommends the wearing of face coverings indoors regardless of a person’s vaccination status.  This is in keeping with the CDC’s recommendation for areas like Middlesex County experiencing substantial or high transmission of COVID-19 infections at this time. 

Effective 8a.m. Friday the 24th of September; the following administrative directive is in effect:

-    All persons aged 2 or older entering into town buildings must wear a face covering during the time they are located within such a building.  

-    Face coverings are not required for anyone who is unable to wear a mask due to a demonstrable disability or medical condition.

-    The so-called West Wing “Corridor” barriers shall be re-introduced to limit the public travel within Town Hall.

-    Social distancing is encouraged when at all possible.

-    Electronic transactions, telephone and appointments are encouraged to the maximum extent feasible for the transaction of all Town business.

-    All entry doors shall be posted with the notice attached.

-    A supply of facial coverings shall be maintained by each facility for members of the public who do not have such a covering.

This administrative directive shall remain in place until revoked based on then current public health data and after consultation with the Board of Health.

Failure of a member of the public to comply, after appropriate reminders and requests by Town staff for voluntary compliance, shall be treated as prohibited conduct and the staff member observing such refusal shall contact the Police Department to remove such persons, as necessary. 

You may contact the Town Administrator’s Office for any questions on this matter.
