Masks optional at the Lebanon Farmers’ Market
Beginning this Thursday, June 3, the City of Lebanon will no longer require masks to be worn at the outdoor Farmers’ Market. From the City’s own digital lips:
Lebanon Farmers' Market Mask Update
“The City of Lebanon is now able to boast zero active cases of COVID-19, and we are now ready to relax the mask wearing requirement at City sponsored outdoor recreation events, including the Farmers' Market. Beginning this week, masks are not required while attending the outdoor market, but we do highly recommend them for those whom are not vaccinated. Since our youth sports participants are either not yet fully vaccinated or are too young for vaccinations, we are still requiring masks for the remainder of this season. Please reach out to us at email@example.com if you have any questions. Thank you.”
Can you wear a mask if you want to? Of course. Might you keep a mask in your pocket just in case (an individual vendor might prefer it)? Yes. Just take a deep, maskless (if you’d like) breath, rouge those vaccinated lips, and head to the Farmers’ Market at Colburn Park on Thursday (4 to 7 pm).
