At its Tuesday, October 6, 2020 the Board of Health issued Emergency Order No. 13.
Pursuant to the declaration of a public health emergency on March 20, 2020, G.L. c. 111, §122, 310 CMR 11.05, 105 CMR 300.200 and all other authorizing statutes and regulations, acting by and through its agent authorized under MGL c. 111, §31 we, the Board of Health of the Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts, hereby order the following for the protection of public health and safety and to protect against the outbreak of COVID-19 on the Island of Nantucket.
This order is necessary because, due to the unique characteristics of the Island of Nantucket, emergency orders issued by the Governor and state agencies have not been effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19. In fact, since September there has been a significant surge of COVID-19 cases on the Island, resulting in numerous hospitalizations and deaths. Given the limited resources available to treat large numbers of infected individuals and to protect public health, safety and welfare, the Board of Health hereby issues the following order.
ORDERED by Board of Health this 6th day of October 2020
