Mask up, check for updates before you visit and always keep a healthy distance from others. Together, we can keep Watertown open for adventure.
Restrictions & Updates
At the Monday, December 7, 2020 Watertown City Council meeting, a new resolution was passed which now requires face masks to be worn whenever Watertown residents are within six feet of someone they do not reside with. The resolution does not apply to those eating or drinking. In addition, all businesses or public gathering areas must also prominently display a sign encouraging the use of face-masks.
