Given the worsening numbers of infected and ill COVID patients both in Connecticut and in Easton, I am mandating that masks be worn in all public buildings in Easton. Business will otherwise be conducted as usual. I hope our restaurants and farms will require masks indoors as well. I urge all residents to be appropriately cautious with social distancing, hand washing and to be thoughtful about what we do at home.
With the start of the school year fast approaching, and the Senior Center remaining open, I want to be proactive so that we can begin school normally and keep our Senior Center providing valuable support and social interactions for our seniors.
I do not take this action lightly. As always, I trust the people of Easton to do the right thing both for themselves and for our community.
