The guidance includes a recommendation for fully vaccinated people to return to wearing facial coverings in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission.

This requirement includes vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals, per CDC guidelines. If you require a special accomodation, you should contact the approrpriate office in advance.

Law Enforcement officials are authorized to issue trespass warning and remove and individuals who are not in compliance with this policy.
At this time, there is not facial covering requirement in City facilities. We are monitoring and discussing the situation. In the meantime, we continue to encourage all safety precautions for our staff and residents.
