TO:                  All City Employees

FROM:            Mayor David R. Martin

DATE:            August 2, 2021

SUBJECT: Face Covering/Mask Requirement

Effective immediately, all employees, vaccinated and unvaccinated, are required to wear a face covering/mask while in the Government Center and other city facilities. This requirement will remain in effect until further notice.

A fully vaccinated employee has the option not to wear a face covering/mask while working alone in a private office or in an area cordoned off from other individuals. The Human Resources Department will continue to process the ID Card sticker program for vaccinated employees. I encourage employees who work outdoors to also wear a face covering/mask while at work and potentially exposed to the general public.

The general public and visitors are required to wear a face covering/mask at all times while in the Government Center and other City facilities. This is a continuation of our current mask policy for visitors. It is strongly encouraged that the general public wear a face covering/masks while using outdoor city facilities.

These requirements are in line with most recent Connecticut Department of Public Health recommendation regarding the wearing of face coverings/mask for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals when in indoor public spaces.

"Given the rapid increases in cases of COVID-19 in Connecticut over the last 14 days due to the spread of the Delta variant, the Connecticut Department of Public Health is strongly recommending that ALL CONNECTICUT residents over two years of age, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, return to wearing masks when in indoor public spaces.

As the Delta variant continues to accelerate the spread of COVID, please be aware that all safety protocols and policies may be subject to change.

Please continue to be safe and protect the public, your co-workers, yourself and your family.

Thank you.
