The updated directive that includes face coverings will strongly encourage, though not require, staff and visitors to wear masks in County facilities beginning Monday, Nov. 15. The directive applies to facilities like libraries, recreation centers, and Frederick B. Karl County Center. However, the County follows Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, and employees who interact with vulnerable populations will be required to continue to wear masks for indoor programming.

CDC guidance strongly recommends that unvaccinated people and those with weakened immune systems continue to wear masks.

County officials will continue to work with the Florida Department of Health and other medical experts to monitor the COVID-19 transmission levels in the county and will update indoor protocols accordingly for both staff and visitors to County facilities.
