Town Of Brookline Ends Vaccine Requirement At Businesses


Acting Health Commissioner Patrick Maloney announces that the Town of Brookline is ending its requirement that certain businesses must verify patrons’ CoViD-19 vaccination status, effective immediately.

Establishments that had been required to verify vaccination status will no longer be required to do so after public health officials have identified a reduction in key metrics — Intensive Care Unit bed occupancy rates, hospitalizations and test positivity rates.

Masks continue to be required in all publicly-accessible indoor spaces, though the Advisory Council on Public Health will review CoViD-19 data from February 19-27, 2022 at its March 14, 2022 meeting, at which it will make a determination about whether or not lifting the mask mandate is prudent.

“I would like to thank the business community and residents for their flexibility and continued commitment to townwide efforts to curb the spread of the virus in Brookline,” Maloney said.
