FACE COVERINGS REQUIRED IN ALL CITY OF NORTH ADAMS PUBLIC BUILDINGS EFFECTIVE FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, MA (August 5, 2021) – The recent increase in positive COVID-19 cases in the City of North Adams and other communities, including among vaccinated residents, reminds us that the continuing need for caution in the face of the COVID-19 virus, especially in light of new and prevalent COVID variants.
In recognition of current circumstances and in order to protect vulnerable staff members and residents, all visitors to public buildings in the City of North Adams will be required to wear a face covering during their time in the building effective Friday, August 6.
In addition, all city employees must wear a face covering when interacting with the public, and when employees are not in their department area or in hallways or otherwise moving through buildings. Fully vaccinated employees may remove masks at their desks or in their work areas, however unvaccinated or partially vaccinated employees must remain masked at all times while at work.
This action applies to all public buildings including City Hall, the North Adams Public Library, the Mary Spitzer Senior Center, the public safety building, and other city facilities. North Adams Public Schools buildings will follow the joint DPH and DESE guidance regarding masks in school issued on July 30, 2021.
