I had hoped that concerns about Covid-19 and its variants would be a thing of the past by now. Unfortunately, not so.
If you'll be coming to the Cape during the Holiday Season, here's what you'll need to know ...
Federal and state orders are still in place requiring face coverings on public transportation and in transportation hubs.
Locally, the face covering requirements vary by town and may change from time to time depending on current Covid case trends.
In towns where face coverings are not mandated in public places, it's up to each business owner's discretion to require a face covering for entry.
So my recommendation is: carry a mask with you. Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
It's still relatively uncommon for local businesses to require proof of vaccination for entry. But it does happen - mostly in places like bars, dance clubs, and other entertainment venues where lots of people will be indoors, in close proximity to each other.
If you have proof of vaccination, bring it ... just in case.
As you're putting together your list of fun things to see and do while you're here, keep social distancing protocols in mind.
A number of local events and attractions use a "timed entry" reservation system to limit how many people will be in attendance at any one time.
Be sure to make your reservations as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment!
Stay well, and enjoy your visit to Cape Cod!
