Masks are required in Hadley to be worn in public indoor places regardless of vaccination status for those five years of age or older that went in effect on October 24. The Hadley Board of Health indicated the mask mandate is due to the Delta variants and rising cases in surrounding counties and communities.
According to the CDC, “Given what we know about the Delta variant, vaccine effectiveness, and current vaccine coverage, layered prevention strategies, such as wearing masks, are needed to reduce the transmission of this variant.”
