Provincetown Reinstates Mask Mandate

The Board of Selectmen in Provincetown has unanimously voted to reinstate the indoor mask requirement.

The mandate is effective immediately.

There have been 430 coronavirus cases connected to the Provincetown cluster that broke out after July 4th. Many of the cases have been connected to the delta variant, which is known to be more contagious.

As of Friday, 69% of affected individuals are fully vaccinated.

According to Town Manager Alex Morse, if the test positivity rate drops below 3% for a period of at least 5 days, the mandate will shift to an advisory. If the test positivity rate goes under 1% for a period of at least 5 days, the advisory will be lifted.

The advisory and mandate would go back in place if testing raised to the same numbers.
