Worcester Lifting Masks on Friday
Worcester will be lifting its mask mandate on Friday February 18th. Worcester City Manager Ed Augustus made the recommendation to the Worcester Board of Health along with Dr. Michael Hirsh. The City Manager has received criticism from those who feel it is too soon to lift the mask mandate and those who feel it should have been lifted immediately. Augustus shared his reasons for calling for a lifting of the mandate and why he felt it important to wait until the 18th during his weekly visit to the Talk of the Commonwealth morning show.
