Guidance to Cape & Islands Seasonal Community

Information for Members of Cape Cod & the Island’s Seasonal Community:

Updated as of May 18, 2020 – Effective through the end of Phase 1 of Governor Baker’s Phased Plan to Reopen Massachusetts.

Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and the Elizabeth Islands are small year-round communities whose residents appreciate, welcome, and depend upon you, our seasonal residents, non-resident homeowners, seasonal workforce, and visitors.

During the COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming summer season, we all understand the desire to return to visit, work, or live on the Cape & Islands. So far, we have been successful in limiting the extent of the impact of COVID-19 on our communities by implementing early and vigilant social distancing measures per the guidance of the public health officials.
