August 20, 2021 Message From Rick Tracy, Emergency Preparedness Officer, Regarding Masking and Social Distancing
I am concerned about the Delta variant of the Covid 19 virus and the increasing infection / positivity rate in our area. I am especially concerned about young children who are unable to be vaccinated due to age as well as immunocompromised individuals. After consulting with health care officials and communicating with the Supervisor, the following will take effect as of the opening for business on Friday 08/20/2021.
All occupants of the Rush Town Hall complex as well as any facilities owned / operated by the Town of Rush are required to be masked at any point in time when social distancing is not possible, regardless of vaccination status. To be clear if you are in your office / work area and are alone or properly distanced, you do not need to have a mask on. If you are in any situation where you may not be able to be socially distanced, you must have a mask on (for example sitting next to one another in a meeting, traveling thru common area's, etc.). This policy will remain in effect until further notice.
