Provincetown is advising people to wear masks indoors if they can't social distance - that includes people who are vaccinated. The advisory comes after more than 130 people have tested positive for COVID since July 4.
Town officials held an emergency meeting Monday morning about the growing cluster of cases with the state's Department of Public Health. Afterwards, they issued their public health advisory on masks and social distancing. They also continued to push for people to get vaccinated and urged businesses to require proof of vaccination at events without social distancing.
This is all happening on the heels of what was supposed to be a comeback summer for the Cape.
Rob Anderson owns the Canteen in Provincetown, which is open year round. He walks us through what this increase in cases is meaning for business and the other challenges facing restaurants like his on the Cape.
