Face Covering Guidance at the Hús

  • Cumberland County Transmission levels: High

  • Face Covering Policy: Masks are Recommended


Currently, the New England Ocean Cluster is following face covering recommendations put forth by the US CDC and the Governor’s Office. These recommendations are derived from Covid-19 transmission levels on a county-by-county basis, and are rated on a scale of low, moderate, substantial, and high. These ratings reflect the number of new cases reported per 100,000 residents over the past 7 days. When counties fall in the substantial or high transmission levels, the CDC recommends indoor face coverings for everyone. When at low or moderate levels, face coverings are optional for vaccinated individuals. For more on the interim public health recommendations during the Delta variant surge, please visit the US. CDC here.

So what does all this mean? The Hús will toggle between two different operating policies as outlined below:


Policies for Low and Moderate Transmission Levels

  • VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS: Face coverings are a choice! We’re pleased to share that you’re welcome to do what you’re most comfortable with.

  • UNVACCINATED INDIVIDUALS: Out of an abundance of caution, and in keeping with health authority guidelines, masks remain required for unvaccinated individuals (including children).


Policies for Substantial and High Transmission Levels


  • VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS: Face coverings are strongly recommended!

  • UNVACCINATED INDIVIDUALS: Masks remain required for unvaccinated individuals (including children).

  • Everything else remains the same as above


Below are the key things we’ll do to make this process as easy as possible for tenants and guests:

  • We’ll have ample signage to make things very clear from the moment you step in the front door

  • There will always be disposable masks for you and your guests if you arrive without one

  • You’ll come to know aquamarine signage as present when masks are optional, and the more vibrant NEOC orange when they’re required

  • The NEOC team will be always available to offer friendly reminders and further clarification when necessary

A few important reminders:

  • The Hús is a symptom-free zone, please stay home if you’re feeling sick.

  • Sanitize and wash your hands often, this dramatically reduces the spread of illnesses.

  • Sanitize public items and spaces after use. All you need to do is a quick spray and wipe!

  • Above all, be courteous and respectful! And don't forget to say hello to one another.


Much appreciated,


The NEOC Team!
