The Kinsman Free Public Library follows all guidelines and recommendations made by the CDC with regards to masking in the Library. These recommendations are fluid and will change in response to the level of community transmission in Trumbull County. Signage will be posted to indicate the current mask protocols in place at the library.

Know Your COVID-19 Community Level

COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area. 

What Prevention Steps Should You Take Based on Your COVID-19 Community Level?
