City of Easthampton Follows State Guidelines for COVID-19 Measures
Easthampton, MA - on March 15, 2023, the Healey-Driscoll Administration announced that the state’s COVID-19 public health emergency will end on May 11, 2023, to align with the end of the federal public health emergency. This week's announcement, ahead of the 45-day notice required by state law, allows additional time for impacted organizations to prepare for the end of the public health emergency.
The Easthampton Board of Health and Easthampton Licensing Board will align its policies with the current MA Department of Public Health (DPH) advisory and State and Federal expiration of public health emergency.
On April 1, 2023, all extensions of the Alcohol Beverages Control Commission are set to expire prior to the end of the public health emergency. This includes patios/outdoor expansions and takeaway/delivery of alcohol.
The City shall work closely with State and Federal agencies to coordinate efforts to end the public health emergency.
We understand that this has been a challenging time for businesses, and we want to thank you for your cooperation and commitment to keeping our community safe.
