Covid-19 Update from Cape Cod

Updated: August 28, 2021

Cape Cod's Covid-19 situation has not changed significantly since my last update a few weeks ago.

If you'll be coming to the Cape, here's what you need to know ...

Face Covering & Social Distancing

Indoor mask mandates are still in place in Provincetown, Wellfleet and Truro, as well as on the island of Nantucket.

Mashpee requires face masks in all town offices.

Other Cape Cod towns are strongly recommending that everyone wear face coverings in indoor spaces and anywhere that 6 feet of social distancing cannot be maintained.

It's also becoming more common on the Cape and the islands for local businesses to ask for proof of vaccination for entry.

*Note: Federal orders are still in place requiring that everyone wear face coverings on public transportation and in all transportation hubs (e.g., bus, train, and ferry terminals; airports; bus stops; etc.).

Also, Cape Cod National Seashore follows federal government rules. In all places managed by the National Parks Service, anyone who is not fully vaccinated must wear a face covering indoors and in crowded spaces outdoors.

National Seashore Visitor Center Closures

The two Cape Cod National Seashore visitors centers (Salt Pond in Eastham and Province Lands in Provincetown)  remain closed until further notice. 

At both visitor centers, outdoor information stations are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The park stores and restrooms are also open, and staff are available to answer visitors' questions and provide information.

As the Covid situation on Cape Cod continues to evolve, I'll update the information on this page. So please check back often.
