COVID-19 Updates (In Phase III, Step 1-Levels 1, 2 and 3 Allowed)
Mask Required for All Players and SpectatorsUpdatedSunday September 6, 2020 by Brian Tetreault.
Please see attachments for City of Easthampton guidelines during COVID-19 crisis. All EYSA activities at the Nonotuck Soccer Complex must follow guidelines provided by the City of Easthampton Board of Health and Park & Rec Departments; and from Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association.
Easthampton BOH Mask Order (effective 8/21/20)
The BOH voted at their meeting on Wednesday the 19th to require masks to be worn, regardless of social distancing, in certain areas of the city effective Friday at 8:00 a.m. These areas include:
-The downtown and mill areas as seen highlighted on the map attached to the order
-The Manhan Rail Trail (bike path)
-All city owned parks and property
Additionally, a mask must be on your person while on any public sidewalk, outside of the areas listed above, and be put on when passing another or coming within 6 feet of another.
This order is enforceable with ticketing by the Health and Police Departments. As always, both my office and the Police Department have operated on a compliance and education basis. It is not our goal to go out and ticket people and in our experience, majority of people comply after being spoken to. We do still have masks that we can offer to those who do not have them. My health inspector, Alex White, started on Monday and he will take a few hours a week to walk around to help educate the public and remind them of thisorder.
The official Mask Press Release and Mask Order-Signed can be found in attachments below.
