GREENFIELD – Mayor Roxann Wedegartner will lift the State of Emergency in the City of Greenfield on Tuesday, June 15, 2021. This will be in-sync with the lifting of the State of Emergency in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on the same day. In Greenfield, this decision was made in accordance with the Commonwealth’s action and after discussion by the City’s Emergency Operations Team. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Greenfield has been under a municipal State of Emergency since March 13, 2020.
In addition, City Hall will reopen with new, summer hours* (Monday through Friday - *9 a.m. to 4 p.m.). In all municipal buildings, and in accordance with updated guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), masks will be required for individuals who are not fully vaccinated. We ask the community at this time to please be responsible and continue to think about the most vulnerable members of our community – if you are not fully vaccinated, please wear a mask when visiting any municipal building.
According to Mayor Wedegartner, “This is another major milestone in the City’s fight against COVID-19 and an important step forward toward returning to a sense of normalcy in Greenfield. Over the past 15 months, I have been so proud of our community and the strength of our residents that was on display throughout this incredibly challenging time.”
Over the course of the pandemic, the Greenfield Health Department and City have been regularly reporting data on the status of COVD-19 in Greenfield. Beginning next week, the Greenfield Health Department will continue to create and publish a weekly report on the status of COVID-19 in Greenfield but the City will no longer be reporting that data on a daily basis. The Greenfield Health Department and City will continue using data from the Massachusetts Virtual Epidemiologic Network (MAVEN) as an official source for that information.
