Masking Requirements in KCPL Buildings

Effective Monday, March 14, 2022:

KCPL is implementing a new masking system based on the recently released CDC's COVID-19 Community Level guidance.

Under the new system:

When Kent County is at a Low or Medium COVID-19 Community Level, masks will be optional in library buildings.

When Kent County is at a High COVID-19 Community Level, masks will be required in library buildings for anyone ages 2 and up.

Low: Masks Optional. Medium: Masks Encouraged. High: Masks Required, No Food and Drinks Allowed.

Know Your Community Level

The CDC's Community Levels by County map is updated weekly on Thursday evening.

KCPL will check the CDC map weekly on Friday morning and post the current Community Level at all KCPL locations. Library users will be required to follow CDC-recommended masking guidelines for the current level.

Visit the CDC's COVID-19 by County page for more information about Community Levels.
