Update: Headline changed, since the town is mandating you cover your face with something, not necessarily an N95 mask.

The town announced today that:

Effective Friday, April 17, anyone out in public in Brookline is required to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth, and residents are reminded that they should only be leaving home to purchase essentials or to get to essential jobs.

Officials left unanswered what happens to people found maskless on town streets, however.

Brookline face-mask recommendations.

Brookline officials report the town has had 148 confirmed Covid-19 cases, with four deaths.
