Attleboro requiring masks for visitors to government buildings, employees who are unvaccinated

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WLNE) – The City of Attleboro now requires all visitors to government buildings to wear a mask, and employees who are unvaccinated are also required to mask up in certain settings.

In an email obtained by ABC6, Attleboro mayor Paul Heroux told city employees they must provide proof of vaccination in order to not wear a mask inside city buildings. The email says outside of city buildings, vaccinated employees do not need to wear a mask if they are engaging with a member of the public from over six feet away.

Additionally, if two employees are in the same office but are six feet apart, masks are not required.

“As I said, I am not happy about going back to masks. Like many of you, I also do not like wearing a mask,” Mayor Heroux said in the email. “However, masks help reduce the spread.”

The requirements go into effect immediately.
