To date, March 2021, the state park and many businesses in Island Pond have reopened. Outside dining and limited inside dining is now allowed for restaurants and cafes. 


The remaining covid-19 restrictions affect churches, schools, and museums. Social distancing rules still mean not having too many people together in the same space. Schools will reopen this March with smaller or staggered classes.

The Island Pond Historical Society museum on Cross Street is currently closed for the winter, but we are hopeful the museum will reopen in June.

In Island Pond, many businesses have reopened including Brighton Garage, the Essex House, Hobos, Gerardos, Jesse's, and all the stores and the post office and banks, and a new restaurant - the Kingdom Grille, had its Grand Opening on July 9 last year.
