City Continues to Require Masks for Business at City Hall


This Shopper at Wal-Mart is Wondering if She Will be Required to Wear a Face Covering Starting on Monday, May 24, at the Falmouth Store.

Effective Monday, May 24, the city will no longer require temp checks or ask health screening questions of the public who enter city hall on Congress Street in Portland.  However, masks will be required to be worn, even for those individuals who have been vaccinated.  City staff that interact with the public will also be required to wear masks, even if they have been vaccinated.

City hall and city buildings will still only be open for limited services.  The Treasury office will continue to operate by appointment only.  The city clerk’s office and the parking office will serve walk-in customers from the basement level of city hall.  All other city services will continue to operate virtually on-line and via email.

City officials will reassess in the next month or two about plans to fully reopen buildings to the public.
