Clarification of Letter to Nantucket Seasonal Residents:
(April 29, 2020) A letter to seasonal residents from the Town of Nantucket, Nantucket Cottage Hospital, and the Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce that was released on Monday
appears to be causing confusion related to the scope of recommendations and its intent. Together, we feel it is important to clarify that the recommendation regarding quarantine for those traveling to Massachusetts pertains only to the timeframe of Governor Baker's orders which have now been extended through May 18
and was intended as information only for seasonal residents of Nantucket planning to return to the island while the orders are in place.
It was not intended to reflect recommendations related to hotel occupancy and short-term rentals. Those recommendations
will be updated as information is released from the Governor’s office. We ask everyone to use personal discretion in your behavior when assessing your level of risk to others and limit your interactions accordingly, following directives for travel set forth by the CDC
and local authorities.
