Face masks required beginning December 6

Due to increasing COVID positivity and caseloads, notably high in north central Mass., and with a recommendation from the Board of Health, the Town of Athol will institute a TEMPORARY MASK MANDATE for all public places inside public buildings (eg. Town Hall, Library, Police, Fire, DPW facilities and the COA) that will be effective on Monday, December 6, 2021 through January of 2022 at which time data will be reviewed to determine whether the requirement shall continue.
