As a result of the increase in COVID-19 cases in Hanover, specifically impacting fully vaccinated individuals, the Hanover Selectboard on Wednesday, August 4th, voted to reinstate Emergency Mask Ordinance (Ordinance #39) to require indoor masking. Outdoor masking will not be required as long as individuals can maintain 3 feet of social distance per the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The indoor masking requirement takes effect immediately and applies to all individuals, no matter their vaccination status. Please, when visiting Hanover retail, restaurant, theatre and professional services establishments, make sure to mask-up before entering. All Town of Hanover facilities require that masks be worn indoors at all times. Dartmouth College announced on August 5th that the same policy exists on campus with the exception of individual dormitory rooms and offices or when eating in a College dining facility.
