5/10/24: Masking Optional

The Valley Health Regional Collaborative, which includes Greenfield, Montague, Deerfield, Sunderland, Leverett, and Shutebury, encourages folks to mask if desired when indoors and when social distancing is not possible outdoors. This recommendation is based on wastewater epidemiology, the number of cluster events, the positivity rate of testing for COVID-19, hospitalizations from COVID-19, and case counts within our towns as a whole.

We will continue to evaluate data on a bi-weekly basis in order to provide the most up to date information on COVID-19 in our communities. Please check back for weekly updates.

Covid and Flu Vaccine Clinics:

The CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older should get an annual flu vaccine and be up to date with COVID-19 vaccination. Everyone 5 years or older should receive 1 dose of the latest covid-19 vaccine (at least 2 months after most recent covid-19 vaccine). Children aged 6 months to 4 years and those who are immunocompromised may require multiple doses to be up to date - please contact your healthcare provider to learn which dose schedule is appropriate.
