COVID-19 & Flu Advice

On May 11, 2023, all Federal and State COVID-19-related emergency orders were rescinded.

For 2023-2024, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting an updated COVID-19 vaccine. 

  • Everyone aged 5 years and older should get 1 dose of the updated Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to protect against serious illness from COVID-19. 
  • People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may get additional doses of the updated COVID-19 vaccine. 
  • Children aged 6 months–4 years need multiple doses of COVID-19 vaccines to be current, including at least 1 dose of updated COVID-19 vaccine.

What You Need to Know About Monkeypox (MPX)

In the United States, pox cases (formerly monkeypox) have declined since peaking in August 2022, but the outbreak is not over. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to receive reports of cases that reflect ongoing community transmission in the United States and internationally. Although vaccine-induced immunity is incomplete, vaccination remains one of the most critical prevention measures. Spring and summer seasons in 2023 could lead to a resurgence of pox as people gather for festivals and other events.

Refuse and Recycling Collection Regulations

Download the Board of Health Regulations (PDF).

Effective November 1, 2022, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) added textiles, mattresses, and box springs to its ban on disposing of these items in landfills, meaning they must be recycled. The ban aims to reduce the amount of waste deposited in the constantly shrinking landfills. According to the MassDEP, 95% of the textiles recovered can be recycled. The Town of Egremont has met this new ban by adding two collection programs to the Town's many other recycling programs.
