The Commonwealth has asked all lodging to mention to guests upon making a reservation and upon checking in that the state urges you to self quarantine for 14 days if you live outside of MA . Vistors from out-of-state are urged, but not required, to quarantine for 14-days. This guidance does not apply to travelers from
Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York or New Jersey. Additionally, workers designated by the federal government as essential critical infrastructure workers are also exempt from this directive.

You will find information about the beaches here and purchase beach parking permits here. The Town of Chatham's Board of Selectman and Parks & Recreation Commission will meet to design a plan that accommodates the COVID requirements at all of our parks and beaches - the beaches currently remain open and there is no plan to close them providing that beach goers follow the guidelines mentioned above.
Events that have been canceled to date include: Cape Cod Baseball League season, Chatham's 4th of July parade and fireworks (new this year), and the Friday evening Band Concerts in Kate Gould Park. Many business owners in town are actively working to devise creative ways to experience Chatham this summer, which means that this could be the start of some new Chatham traditions!
You can expect to receive multiple updates from us over the next few weeks as we receive updates from the state & town, as well as when your arrival date nears. We sincerely hope that all of you are healthy and looking forward to relaxing in different surroundings. We have been creative with cancelling or restructuring leases these past few months and your flexibility and prompt responses have been enormously helpful. Thank you for your patience.
