Face Masks Required in all Town of Duxbury Municipal Buildings
December 22, 2021
We have all been hearing reports on the news regarding an increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases not just locally but nationally and globally. In fact, effective December 21, 2021, in response to the spread of the Delta variant and the emerging Omicron variant, the Department of Public Health now advises that all residents, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home). We need to continue to be as cautious as possible for our own personal safety and that of others.
As a result, effective Thursday, December 23, 2021, face masks/face coverings will be required for all individuals aged 2 years or older*, by employees and patrons alike regardless of vaccination status, when inside all Town of Duxbury municipal buildings. (*Except where an individual is unable to wear a face mask / face covering due to a medical condition or disability.)
At this time, appointments are not required to conduct business at municipal offices, and events and meetings will continue as planned. Signs will be posted at the entrances and exits of all town buildings as a reminder of this requirement. Residents and others visiting Town buildings are encouraged to maintain a social distance of 6 feet from others when feasible.
The following measures remain in place in Town buildings to ensure the health and safety of both employees and the public:
• Increased cleaning schedules in Town buildings
• Installed hand sanitization stations
• Protective barriers
This requirement will remain in effect until further notice, and we will provide updates through our website and social media accounts when available.
