IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to a recent spike in COVID-19 cases, both in Massachusetts and throughout the United States, NewTV has decided to continue its limited hours and special guidelines into the month of September. Please click here for more details about our September procedures for visiting NewTV. The health and safety of our staff, our members, and the entire Newton community remains our number one priority. 

On Monday, before the special School Committee meeting on Tuesday, all of Newton’s City Councilors sent a memo to Mayor Ruthanne Fuller requesting additional steps be put in place regarding the mask mandate. “First, expand the mask mandate to include indoor spaces in all school buildings and all private businesses that are open to the public; and Second, require all city and school employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 (with exceptions for employees with demonstrated medical conditions or sincerely held religious beliefs that cannot be reasonably accommodated). We are cognizant of the legal and collective bargaining issues involved in this decision. But our collective lives and economic well-being are at stake. Now is the time to follow the evidence. We must beat COVID-19 and the only way to do so is if we are all vaccinated. Thank you for all you are doing to keep our residents, workers, and visitors safe.”
