BOSTON (CBS) – When the Big E returns next month for the first time since the COVID pandemic began, visitors could be required to mask up.

The fair in West Springfield typically attracts more than one million people every year.

The Board of Health is holding a public hearing and vote in two weeks to decide whether to implement a mandate for the event.

This year’s Big E runs from September 17-October 3.
