City of Montpelier Staff Mask Policy Update
Because of the rise of local COVID-19 cases, the City has amended its staff mask wearing policy. If the CDC designates Washington County as a “high-level” area of transmission of COVID-19, (the CDC threshold for “high” transmission is 100 cases per 100,000 residents), then the City will require City Staff to wear masks indoors or when in external meetings, regardless of their vaccination status. CDC determination of “high-levels” of transmission can be found here. Unvaccinated employees are still always required to wear masks while indoors.
The City strongly recommends that all visitors wear masks to any indoor City facilities. The City Council will be discussing a mask requirement for visitors at City Hall or other City Facilities at their August 18th Council Meeting.
