Town of Greenwich Revises Mask Protocols for Employees, Visitors

The Town of Greenwich is revising its face mask protocols for both employees and visitors.

First Selectman Fred Camillo said the decision was a temporary measure to ensure the health and well-being of both our dedicated staff and our residents who visit Town facilities.

On Wednesday Camillo sent a letter to staff about the substantial community transmission of the Delta variant of Covid-19 across the state, and noted more companies stores, event venues and restaurants are requiring employees and patrons to be vaccinated and to wear a face mask.

He announced the town is adjusting its face mask policy beginning Monday, Aug 9.

All employees regardless of vaccination status must wear a face mask in public spaces, especially when social distancing is not possible.

All visitors to facilities, including town hall, will be required to wear a face mask regardless of vaccination status.

This is a temporary measure – a minor adjustment of our operations to help us get through this recent uptick in cases,” Camillo wrote, adding, “This does not signal any change in our daily operations – we are open for business.”

Camillo urged employees to consider getting vaccinated if they have not already done so, “to protect yourself, your family and your co-workers.”

“Yes, there are breakthrough cases of the COVID variant. Those patients experience very mild symptoms of the illness,” he added.
