2021 Provincetown Carnival celebrations

Provincetown’s Carnival celebration wil start this weekend. The theme this year is “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”.

New mask wearing guidelines for Provincetown

Entering-Provincetown

UPDATE – 5:30p.m. JULY 20, 2021: The Boston Public Health Commission has issued a public health advisory for those returning from travel to Ptown. Asking all to get tested within 5 days of return regardless of vaccination status or symptoms. More info here: https://bit.ly/2UoOTak.

The Boston Globe is reporting that earlier this morning Provincetown’s select board and board of health issued a new mask-wearing advisory following an uptick in COVID-19 cases among vaccinated and unvaccinated people after July Fourth weekend.

The advisory recommends people wear masks when indoors regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status, ‚Äúwhere social distancing cannot be achieved.‚ÄĚ As of this past Friday (July 16), there were 132 confirmed positive cases. For those in Provincetown looking to get tested, the town has extended their mobile testing to be available through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Community Center parking lot. COVID-19 vaccinations made by Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer will also be available at the site.

How the recent uptick in cases may impact large public gatherings like the Boatslip’s daily tea dances and nightclubs remains to be seen. For more information, read The Boston Globe article, here.
