MARSHFIELD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – The town of Marshfield is preparing for a two-day music festival this weekend where Covid-19 safety will be on many people’s minds.

Normally the annual Levitate Music and Arts Festival will host between 15 and 16 thousand people in a day.

This year, the festival is expected to see around nine thousand over the entire weekend.

Town administrator Michael Maresco says Marshfield only has a handful of reported cases at this point but safety at the event is still a top priority.

“It’s an outside event,” Maresco commented, “people may want masks, people may want to forget their masks. They may get there and they may feel they may want a mask.”

Masks will be passed out at the festival and hand washing stations will also be available throughout the venue. Maresco also posed some suggestions for attendees.

“Maybe try to refrain from hugging people at the concert and stuff like that,” he said, “so that you’re not having those close contact with folks.”

Meanwhile, Marshfield has reactivated its Covid-19 task force.
