As our students head off for their summer break and our staff starts to prepare for their summer adventures, we encourage our Bay Path Community to be vigilant and remain safe. Everyone 16 and older are now eligible to receive vaccines. MA and CT residents can find appointment makers on their government websites. Here are a few helpful reminders and tips to keep your summer safe! Seniors, we wish you all the best of luck, and we hope to see everyone back in the Fall!

IF you are FULLY vaccinated you can:

  • Gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask
  • Gather indoors with unvaccinated people from ONE other household (i.e. relatives who live together) without masks, UNLESS any of those individuals have an increased risk for illness from COVID-19
  • If you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19, you do not need to stay away from others or get tested unless you have symptoms.
