Effective November 3rd, 2021, the mask mandate will transition to a mask advisory.  This will include Holyoke municipal properties such as City Hall and the Annex.

This action does not prevent local businesses or industries from enforcing their own mask requirements.

This also does not apply to the mask mandate in the Public Schools set by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE)
