In a post put out by the City of Bangor, City Hall Facebook Page, starting Monday, August 23rd:

"All visitors to City facilities will be asked to wear a face covering, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings will be available for those who may need one.

Those who enter the Bangor Parks and Recreation facility (647 Main Street) and the offices of Bangor Public Health and Community Services (103 Texas Avenue) will be REQUIRED to wear a face covering.

Per Federal transit requirements, all Community Connector passengers (and employees) and anyone entering any Bangor International Airport facility MUST wear a face covering, regardless of vaccination status."

The City cites suggested directions from the CDC, regarding the increased transmission of the Delta Variant of Covid-19, which has been circulating throughout the state and across the nation, as the reason for insisting upon the increased safety measures.

City officials also remind residents that if they are uncomfortable coming into City buildings to do things like obtain registrations or pay bills, there are a number of things that can be done right online.
