Town of Manchester Issues Mask Mandate
Due to rising cases of COVID-19, the Town of Manchester currently has a mask mandate in place. Effective since August 21st, the mandate requires everyone in Manchester to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status in all indoor public spaces, meeting spaces, private businesses, and all places of employment except when eating and drinking or with a valid written medical exemption from a physician. No capacity restrictions or social distancing requirements have been included in the mandate.
“The health and safety of Manchester residents is always my main goal as Mayor,” said Mayor Moran in a press release. “As I have stated from the onset of this pandemic, I am relying on the advice of our public health professionals, and the Town is supporting this mitigation effort to keep our businesses thriving, our schools open, and our residents safe and healthy.”
The Town of Manchester will also be sponsoring free vaccine clinics on September 4th and 25th, from 10 AM to 2 PM under the pavilion at Charter Oak Park. For more information on obtaining the vaccine, call the Manchester Public Health Department at (860)647-3173 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
