The City of Salem and its business community are working hard ensure the safety of visitors and employees. Please help keep Salem safe by following CDC guidelines and staying home if you are not feeling well, wearing a mask, and washing your hands frequently.
Effective August 23, 2021, the City of Salem requires masks to be worn in all indoor public areas. Salem’s mask requirement is currently in place through November 13 pending public health data. Massachusetts requires masks to be worn while on public and private transportation (including trains, buses, ferries, taxis, and ride shares, and while in stations) and while in healthcare settings. Find more information on the City of Salem’s COVID-19 response at salem.com/masks and review the mask mandate from the Salem Board of Health here.
There are currently no restrictions on capacity in Massachusetts, unless set by individual businesses. Confirm capacity limits and reservation requirements with individual businesses ahead of your visit.
There are currently no travel restrictions for visitors entering Massachusetts, however the state recommends that people follow CDC guidelines for travel.
If anything changes for October 2021, we will update this page. Prior to travel, please confirm hours and availability with individual businesses, and note that online reservations are recommended and may still be required in some locations.
We are cautiously optimistic that October will be a fun celebration of fall and Halloween in Salem, and we are prepared to make modifications if needed to ensure the safety of residents, employees, and visitors.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
