Beginning May 18, 2021, fully vaccinated individuals may enter and use the Library without a mask or facial covering. All those who are NOT fully vaccinated must continue to wear a mask while entering and using the Library and must maintain social distancing.
This policy was instituted In accordance with the Governor's Order released on May 17, 2021 that states:
In accordance with the guidance issued on May 13, 2021 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, all fully vaccinated people (fully vaccinated refers to a person who is ≥2 weeks following receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series, or ≥2 weeks following receipt of one dose of a single-dose vaccine, per the CDC Public Health Recommendations for Vaccinated Persons) can resume activities without wearing a mask.
However, vaccinated individuals must continue to wear masks on all planes, trains, buses and other forms of public transportation.
Except as provided herein, all individuals that are not fully vaccinated in the State of Ohio shall wear facial coverings at all times when:
- In any indoor location that is not a residence
- Outdoors and unable to consistently maintain a distance of six feet or more from individuals who are not members of their family/household
- Waiting for, riding, driving, or operating public transportation, a taxi, car service, or a ride sharing vehicle. This does not apply to private or rental vehicles where members of a family/household are sharing a vehicle.
Please remember to wash your hands and use our hand sanitizers that are located throughout the building. We ask that individuals who are sick refrain from using the Library while illness persists. Thank you.
