The City of Woburn Board of Health and Mayor Galvin will join the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on May 29th, 2021 in rescinding all COVID-19 restrictions, except for remaining face-covering requirements for public and private transportation systems and facilities housing vulnerable populations. All industry restrictions will be lifted, and capacity will increase to 100% for all industries. The gathering limits will be rescinded.
On July 30, 2021 The MA Department of Public Health provided an advisory, based on updated guidance from the CDC, regarding the use of face coverings by fully vaccinated individuals.
The updated guidance and advisory from both The CDC and MA DPH continues to state that individuals who are fully vaccinated may, resume many activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except in certain settings including transportation and health care facilities. However, in response to the recent spread of the delta variant, it is now recommended that even fully vaccinated persons wear masks or face coverings when indoors to protect vulnerable individuals if other risks are present.
In light of this new guidance regarding the delta variant, the Board of Health, with my concurrence, recommend that fully vaccinated individuals wear a mask in city hall and other city buildings if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated.
Unvaccinated individuals are required to wear a mask and continue distancing in city hall and other city buildings and are urged to obtain the vaccine.
This information is updated weekly.
