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.
