Warm weather and sunshine is upon us as is Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start to the Summer season. While we enjoy barbecues and gatherings this holiday weekend, let us never forget the meaning behind Memorial Day: a time to remember those men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and the freedom we continue to enjoy. We are pleased to remind everyone about the return of the Memorial Day Parade this year! Please consider attending to honor the members of our military who died in the line of duty bravely serving our country. The parade will step off from Smith's Clove Park at 1:30 p.m. and conclude with a ceremony at the Monroe Cemetery located on Route 17M (across from Sterling Bank).
Thankfully, we have been trending in a positive direction the past several weeks as we begin to regain some sense of normalcy! To this end, we are pleased to announce the reopening of Town Hall to the public on Tuesday, June 1st. Following Governor Cuomo’s adoption of the CDC guidelines lifting the mask mandate for vaccinated individuals, masks will no longer be required at town buildings for individuals who are fully vaccinated (*you are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after your 2nd dose of the vaccine). Individuals who are immunocompromised or are unvaccinated should continue to wear masks and socially distance. Please be advised that all visitors will continue to partake in a temperature screening upon arrival to all town buildings until further notice. Lastly, please continue to be respectful of others by remaining at home should you feel ill or exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19.
Thank you for your continued cooperation. Let's all look forward to a fun-filled, safe Summer ahead.
Supervisor, Town of Monroe
