Great Barrington business owners and town leaders want to assure people it is a COVID-safe community.

They are taking action because of something called the Great Barrington Declaration.


The controversial open letter advocates for herd immunity and says lockdowns are unnecessary. The American Institute for Economic Research in Great Barrington developed it.

The town had no role in it.
