Mask Order

At their February 16, 2022, meeting, Wakefield’s Board of Health voted to rescind the Town’s mask mandate for public indoor spaces and municipal buildings effective Friday, February 18, at 12:01 a.m.

Update calls

The update calls with Wakefield’s Town Administrator and other leaders are currently on hiatus. The schedule will resume should the need arise.


The case data historically reported on our dashboard was from PCR (long form) tests, like those performed at public testing sites throughout the state. This PCR test data was collected by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) and Wakefield’s Health Department.

Antigen (at-home, rapid) test results are not reported to the MDPH or Health Department. Since these antigen tests are becoming the preferred method due to their availability and quick results, the Health Department case data is becoming less accurate. We will therefore no longer be posting case data.
