  • As of June 15, 2021 the State of Emergency in Massachusetts has been lifted.
  • As of May 29, 2021 all remaining state-wide COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, and all industries in Massachusetts are open at 100% capacity.
  • Also as of May 29, the state-wide face covering order has been rescinded. Massachusetts is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s updated face mask guidance.

The Lexington Board of Health emphasizes that all unvaccinated individuals, including children under the age of 12, are at increased risk of exposure to the virus whenever they are in settings with unmasked individuals.  Vaccination and continued mask wearing whenever in close quarters with others, remain our only effective path to continued reduction in COVID case numbers.

COVID-19 Booster Shots

CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Immunocompromised people should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them. Read more about the CDC’s recommendations.

Eligible individuals can find a location to get a booster dose by using the State’s VaxFinder:  http://vaxfinder.mass.gov

The general public has not yet been approved for a third dose, but the CDC is planning in the event it is. Read more.
