Summer hotspot Provincetown issues face mask advisory after new COVID outbreak – New York Post

A coronavirus break out linked to a Cape Cod summertime holiday hotspot triggered regional health authorities on Monday to institute a brand-new mask advisory, a report said.

Many of those infected are completely vaccinated and 89 of them are Massachusetts homeowners, the report said.

Homeowners in Provincetown, Massachusetts, are being recommended to wear the face coverings inside following the cluster of 132 cases that is believed to have actually come from Fourth of July events, NBC Boston reported.

At least one member of the health board felt more action is needed.

As part of the advisory, passed Monday by the Provincetown Board of Health, high-density venues are prompted to impose vaccination status upon entry, the report said.

” I have to state, Im a little disappointed that we have not taken a more powerful stand on this. Instead of just advising, we should require masks,” said Dr. Janet Whelan, according to the report.
