BROOKLINE – Health Commissioner Sigalle Reiss and the Brookline Department of Public Health announce that the Town of Brookline is lifting the face-covering requirements in town-owned buildings where the public gathers effective immediately.
The decision to lift the mask requirement was based on a review of COVID-19 data including declining local case counts, hospital admissions and hospital capacity, wastewater data, Public Schools of Brookline case counts, and vaccine and testing resources. As of Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has transitioned Norfolk, Suffolk, and Middlesex Counties as a low-risk area for COVID-19 transmission.
