With this dedicated COVID-19 webpage our goal is to serve as a trusted source in providing Cape Ann’s business community and residents consolidated, accurate information and guidance during the coronavirus pandemic. This page contains Reopening Information; sector-specific guidance for businesses as we move through the four phases of Reopening Massachusetts; and helpful Health & Safety information as we all work together to stop the spread and overcome COVID-19.
Governor Baker announced that effective Saturday, May 29, all remaining COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted, and the state of emergency will end on June 15. The state’s current face covering order will also be rescinded on May 29, to be replaced by a new face covering advisory consistent with the latest Centers for Disease Control guidance.
Many of the things we do to help prevent colds and the flu can help protect us against other respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:
Proper Handwashing guide & video
Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Clean things that are frequently touched (like doorknobs and countertops) with household cleaning spray or wipes.
Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your inner elbow, not your hands.
Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
There are currently no vaccines available to protect against this novel coronavirus infection.
We can all help prevent the spread of COVID-19 with social distancing:
Call/Facetime/online chat with friends and familyStay home as much as you canIf you must go out:
Don’t gather in groupsStay 6 feet away from others
Don’t shake hands or hug
