Maynard Public Health Update

With Covid-19 cases on the rise in Massachusetts and across the country, Governor Baker issued an advisory that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks in all indoor public spaces. Masks continue to be required in certain settings for all people (regardless of vaccination status) such as on public transportation, health care facilities and in Maynard Town Buildings.

The state Department of Public Health (DPH) particularly urges this mask recommendation for individuals who have a weakened immune system or are at increased risk for severe disease because of age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in their household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated.

DPH also updated guidance to hospitals concerning nonessential, elective invasive procedures. To preserve health care personnel resources, effective 12:01AM on December 27th, all hospitals are directed to postpone or cancel all nonessential elective procedures likely to result in inpatient admission in order to maintain and increase inpatient capacity. Patients are reminded to still seek necessary care at their hospital or from their health care provider. To read the guidance, click here.

The Town of Maynard Public Health Division and Maynard Public Schools are pleased to announce that a second COVID-19 vaccine clinic will be held on January 4th, 2022. Clinics are open to anyone age 5 and older who lives, works, or studies in Massachusetts. Vaccines are free. Click here for clinic details and registration information.
