Greenfield Board of Health and Mayor Wedegartner Reinstate Indoor Mask Mandate Effective December 13, 2021

The Greenfield Board of Health, with the support of Mayor Roxann Wedegartner, voted today to reinstate a city-wide mask mandate effective Monday December 13, 2021. Mayor Wedegartner said today, “Since February 2020, we have managed this ongoing pandemic because we have responded to and relied on following the science and daily monitoring of local case numbers. I fully understand that mask wearing is tedious. I get it. Sadly, the number of cases locally has skyrocketed in recent weeks with no sign of going down. So the Board of Health and I, in consultation, are reinstating the mask mandate. We are heading into the holidays and more indoor gatherings; please wear your mask to protect yourself and others. Masking and vaccination are two things within your control to help end the pandemic.”

Greenfield’s vaccination rate is currently 66% per capita.

The previous City mask order was implemented on September 20, 2021, and rescinded on November 8, 2021. Until May 29, 2021, the City was under the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ state-wide mask order.
