Councilmember Ned Fluet
Dear Neighbor, 

I hope you are doing well. Here are a few updates from the county and town. 

COVID-19 Update

This week, the Governor terminated the executive orders that put into place the Stay Home Order and the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. He also phased out the vast majority of executive actions put in place since March 2020 as part of the pandemic response.

The new public health order effective June 15 supersedes all prior health orders. The order has limited restrictions, only related to masking and mega-events, as well as settings serving children and youth pending an expected update to the K-12 schools guidance by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As of this week, masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals, except in the following settings where masks are required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status:
  • On public transit (examples: airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-shares) and in transportation hubs (examples: airport, bus terminal, marina, train station, seaport or other port, subway station, or any other area that provides transportation)
  • Indoors in K-12 schools, childcare, and other youth settings.
  • Healthcare settings (including long term care facilities) 
  • State and local correctional facilities and detention centers
  • Homeless shelters, emergency shelters, and cooling centers.
Additionally, masks are required for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses (examples: retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, state and local government offices serving the public). 

Businesses, public agencies and other organizations may still require face coverings, for both employees and members of the public.

“What’s important to remember is that not everyone can receive a vaccine due to health considerations, and children under 12 years of age are not eligible. We still need to protect these individuals so, if you are asked, please wear your face mask,” said County Manager Mike Callagy.

More information on the state's reopening and mask requirements can be found here and here.
