The CDC released updated mask recommendations on July 28th 2021. This update added a recommendation for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask when visiting public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission

Since the beginning of this pandemic, the library has followed CDC recommendations closely. DeKalb County is in the substantial category, and so the library is reinstating mask requirements for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, when inside the library building.

This change goes into effect Thursday, July 29th, 2021. The mask requirement will remain active until DeKalb County is updated to a moderate/low transmission state or the CDC updates its recommendation. 

Please continue to check back here for updated information.
