Town of Raymond ~ COVID-19 Mask & Building Updated Policies

 

June 1, 2021

In efforts to help keep our employees and citizens healthy and to help end the pandemic, the Town of Raymond will follow guidelines and best practices set by the Federal and State CDC regarding COVID-19.  Policies will be reviewed and updated as necessary and distributed to all employees.

Following Governor Mills and CDC guideline to be in effect on May 24, 2021

The Town of Raymond is making the following policy changes:

Use of Face Mask:

Fully vaccinated employees* and visitors to town properties and buildings will no longer have to wear a face covering.

Unvaccinated employees and visitors or those not yet fully vaccinated must continue to wear face coverings when in public buildings or in work vehicles.  The exception is when they are alone in their office or in a work vehicle.  Unvaccinated employees will still need to do daily temperature checks when reporting to work.

For visitors coming into town facilities- signage at the doors will reflect the new mask policy and the use of the honor system will be used to determine vaccination status.

Opening of Town Buildings:

All protective barriers, such as plexiglass dividers will remain in placeContinued daily sanitation procedures can be relaxed in all facilities, but efforts need to be made to keep workplace and common areas clean.

Town Hall will no longer need to restrict the number of visitors to the building as of June 1, 2021.  Signage both electronically and on buildings will need to be updated to reflect this change.

The Fire Department buildings will continue to remain closed to the public until a date to be determined.

Any Town of Raymond employee can choose to continue to wear face coverings, regardless of vaccination status.  Any employee uncomfortable with any of the town’s COVID policies are encouraged to discuss it with their supervisor.

*Fully vaccinated means the person has received the full dose of their recommended vaccine (1 or 2 doses) and has met the immunity guideline time frame after receiving their final dose.

                      All residents are encouraged to follow self-watch guidelines, seek medical care when necessary and stay at home if possible as the State of Maine is still under a Medical State of Emergency.   

            The public is encouraged to get information and updates via the town’s electronic sign, website, Facebook, and the RoadRunner newsletter.

 

All Town owned public places such as Raymond Beach and Veterans Memorial Park are open, including Tassel Top Park and Beach. 

 

This plan will be updated as needed. We appreciate your continued cooperation.

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available through your local health authority. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

 

  • Wash your hands frequently- Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
  • Maintain social distancing - Maintain at least 6 feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth - Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
  • Practice respiratory hygiene - Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately and wash your hands.
  • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early. Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. If you travel in public to get medical care wear a mask and avoid touching things to protect others from exposure to the virus.
  • Don't travel to area with known outbreaks.

These tips will help you and your family stay protected not only by the COVID-19 virus but also the flu and other diseases.

 

If you are in need of a fabric face mask, please contact the Raymond Health Officer (contact information below). Raymond has a generous citizen that has offered to make and donate masks to other Raymond residents.
