During this COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Barnstable Board of Health highly recommends face coverings inside stores.

All residents are urged to maintain a minimum of six feet from others while out in public to limit exposure to others.  Residents are also advised to wear face masks or cloth face coverings wherever six feet separations are not possible.  We continue to urge everyone to take basic precautions which include:

  • Frequent hand-washing, for 20 seconds with soap.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Cough hygiene – into a tissue when possible (throw it away immediately) or into your arm.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid contact with those who are ill.
  • Stay home yourself from work when ill.
