Mask guidance for libraries:
the new guidance is a positive step, the vast majority of people need to be
fully vaccinated before COVID-19 precautions can be lifted broadly. Until then,
it is important that everyone continues to adhere to public health mitigation
measures to protect the large number of people who remain unvaccinated.
recommends that fully vaccinated people continue to take these COVID-19
precautions when in public, when visiting with unvaccinated people from
multiple other households, and when around unvaccinated people who are at high
risk of getting severely ill from COVID-19:
• Wear a well-fitted mask.
• Stay at least 6 feet from people
you do not live with.
• Avoid medium- and large-sized
• Get tested if experiencing COVID-19
• Follow guidance issued by individual
• Follow CDC and health department
travel requirements and recommendations.
