Cambridge, Massachusetts. (WHDH)-Massachusetts reports the largest daily total of COVID-19 cases since March, so another city is asking people to mask.
It’s not mandatory, but Cambridge City health officials require everyone to hide their faces if they can’t be socially distanced.
Advisories are increasingly associated with highly contagious Delta variants.
“I think it’s very important to wear a mask, especially when new Delta variants are on the market, but it’s summer so I’d love to have fun, but I can’t do it yet,” said one woman.
Mask recommendations apply to everyone, regardless of vaccination status.
“I think most unvaccinated people will continue to wear masks for everyone’s health, but since it’s summer, people catch it in their own words, but many people see it. Hopefully wear a mask and wait for the case to go down, “said another woman.
Infection with COVID-19 is still incredibly rare among fully vaccinated people.
According to Massachusetts health authorities, the total number of cases of more than 4.3 million fully vaccinated individuals in the state, also known as breakthrough cases, is very low at less than 0.1%.
There is also a mask advisory in Provincetown.
State health officials say the delta mutant has been present in the COVID cluster since July 4.
Dr. Rajeev Fernando states that he is an infectious disease doctor and supports the mask recommendations.
“I missed the boat last April, so it took too long to suggest wearing a mask to see where I finally got there,” he said. “So now I think it’s very important to wear a mask now. Get more information and see what happens.”
