Face Covering Advisory For All Nantucket Residents and Visitors

Face Covering Advisory July 21

As a result of increasing cases across the Cape and Islands, Health & Human Services Department avises all residents and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, to use masks while indoors and at public locations when physical distance is not possible.

The increased virulence of the Delta variant, and its high ability to infect even those vaccinated in some cases, means that masking and distancing are strongly recommended at this time. 

Prolonged exposure, indoors and at high concentrations, is likely the cause of vaccinated individuals becoming infected. The Delta variant has also shown breakthrough ability against natural immunity and can reinfect those who have already had COVID. Please keep your safety, and the safety of those around you, in mind.
