As Hull’s COVID positivity rate continues to decline, town buildings will reopen to the public and in-person public meetings will be held beginning Monday, Feb. 28.
Town Manager Philip Lemnios announced the change this week, citing the reduction in COVID cases “and the expectation the trend will continue.” The change occurs on the same day that Gov. Charlie Baker and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Jeffrey Riley targeted to lift the mask mandate for Massachusetts public schools.
Lemnios said that beginning Feb. 28, town hall, the police and fire stations, the municipal lighting plant, Hull Public Library, Anne M. Scully Senior Center, harbormaster’s office, sewer plant, and DPW office all will be open to the public during regular business hours beginning.
Masks will be optional for staff and members of the public, the town manager said, and Hull’s boards and committees can resume using public buildings for in-person meetings beginning on Feb. 28.
