Easthampton Board of Health lifts indoor mask mandate
EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The Easthampton Board of Health has voted to end a citywide indoor mask mandate, effective immediately.
The Board of Health met Tuesday and made the decision to end the mandate due to a steady decline in cases in the city. Easthampton also has a high vaccination rate with 90 percent with at least one dose, 80.1 percent fully vaccinated, and 50.5 percent with a booster shot.
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health still requires masks to be worn on public and private transportation, healthcare facilities, congregate facilities, emergency shelter programs, and correctional facilities.
