The actions come amid a sharp rise in confirmed Covid-19 cases associated with the Cape Cod beachside town.
Of the infected Massachusetts residents, 71% are symptomatic and 69% are fully vaccinated, the release adds. There have been three hospitalizations — two in Massachusetts and one out of state — but, otherwise, the symptoms are “mild and without complication,” the release states.
Provincetown last Monday issued an advisory asking people to wear masks indoors when social distancing was not possible.
Despite the cluster of cases, Morse said Saturday the daily positivity rate had declined from 15% to 9%, a sign that the outbreak was slowing. The mask mandate will revert to an advisory if there is a test positivity rate below 3% for at least five days, and will be lifted if the rate drops below 1% for at least five days, Morse said.
