Mask Advisory for Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Residents
Effective February 15, 2022: A fully vaccinated individual should wear a mask indoors if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease or is unvaccinated.

Individual businesses still reserve the right to require masks if they so choose.
The Concord School Committee has provided their own guidance which is available on their webpage.
