Town/Village of East Rochester Policy Update for All Employees, Tenants and Visitors at all Facilities effective 08/18/2021

As you are aware, the Delta variant of the Corona virus is a growing concern. The CDC has named Monroe County’s levels of Covid transmission as “substantial”. Although Monroe County has not declared a mandatory mask policy, both the CDC and the Monroe County Health Department recommend masking in indoor facilities for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

Effective immediately, we are strongly encouraging that masks be worn at all times in common areas when outside of your office or cubicle. The policy remains that if you are unvaccinated you are required to wear a mask at all times in all Town/Village owned facilities outside of your office and to put a mask on if someone enters your office. If at any time you are in close proximity to unmasked coworkers and feel uncomfortable, please kindly ask them to put a mask on. We all need to be respectful of each other’s preferences and safety concerns.

If you need a supply of masks, please send me an email to and we will provide them to you. We have supplies of masks, gloves and sanitizer available for all offices, departments and facilities.

Whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated, please notify me immediately if you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus. For those who are vaccinated and have been exposed, the Monroe County Health Department is advising that you resume wearing a mask at all times and that you get tested for the coronavirus.

The Town/Village of East Rochester does not currently screen visitors for the virus nor do we ask vaccinated residents, visitors and vendors to wear masks.

The Town/Village of East Rochester is committed to a safe work environment and ask that everyone do their part. As this situation continues to evolve, we will update policies in accordance with recommended guidelines.
