City of Bangor Requests That Visitors to City Offices and Facilities Wear Face Coverings As Community Transmission of COVID-19 is High
BANGOR, MAINE- In response to the change in the CDC’s designation of Penobscot County to Red (high risk level), effective May 9, 2022 all visitors to City facilities and passengers of the Community Connector will be asked to wear a face covering, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings will be available for those who may need one.
The City will continue to follow CDC protocols. Should the CDC change the risk level to YELLOW or GREEN, the City will return to an optional masking policy.
As a reminder, residents who would rather not visit City Hall to conduct business such as property tax payments, sewer bills, vehicle registrations, and more, can do so online at bangormaine.gov.
