Town of Lincoln COVID-19 Public Health Mandate of the Lincoln Board of Health and the Lincoln Select Board August 16, 2021
In response to the recent increase in positive COVID-19 cases in Lincoln and throughout Middlesex County, including break-through cases among those who have been fully vaccinated, the Lincoln Board of Health has voted, in accordance with its authority under M.G.L. chapter 111, sections 31 and 104, to adopt an indoor mask mandate in the Town of Lincoln.
Effective on 12:01 a.m. August 20, 2021, face coverings are required for all individuals aged two years and above in all indoor public spaces, or private spaces open to the public except where an individual is unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition or disability.
This mandate will be in effect whenever the Level of Community Transmission data from the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for Middlesex County is categorized as either “Substantial” or “High” over a consecutive two-week period.
With regard to the Lincoln Schools, the Board of Health has voted to implement a mandatory indoor face mask order that will be in effect with the resumption of school this fall. The details of the School Department’s masking plan will be outlined by the School Superintendent.
We are grateful for the comparably high vaccination rate and strong adherence to public health best practices among our residents.
Frederick Mansfield, MD Timothy S. Higgins
Chair – Board of Health Town Administrator
