Get ready to go mask-less in Worcester as a motion to drop the city’s mask mandate was  passed the board by a 3-2 vote Monday night. Businesses and colleges can request dropping the mandate even earlier as long as 90% of employees or students are vaccinated.

Worcester joins other cities/towns who are adjusting their mask mandates including Mansfield and Canton.

The CDC has reported that Covid cases are down 53.1% from their peak on Jan. 15.
