(CAPE COD) Today, region-wide guidance was issued to seasonal residents of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket as the summer approaches. The guidance provides information to seasonal residents regarding the Governor’s stay-at-home order and non-essential business closures that are in place through May 18. The guidance is provided in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

The aim of the guidance is to speak with one consistent message to the region’s seasonal residents, second home-owners, summer workers, and visitors to ensure public health and promote economic vitality when we are able to reopen. We appreciate, welcome, and depend on our seasonal residents, now more than ever. We look forward to welcoming you back.

This guidance will be updated on this site as additional information becomes available and as municipalities and organizations sign on. The guidance was developed in consultation with the Baker-Polito Administration.

A regional task force has also been assembled by the Cape Cod & Islands Legislative Delegation, the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, and Barnstable County, with participation from Cape Cod Healthcare, several town managers, and community leaders. More information will be made available on this task force in the coming days.
