In addition, district administrator Bonnie M. Wise has updated an administrative guideline that provides guidance for COVID-19 protocols in county facilities and for district personnel. The updated guideline that includes face coverings will strongly encourage, but not require, staff and visitors to wear masks in facilities across the province from Monday, Nov. 15. The guideline applies to facilities such as libraries, recreation centers and the Frederick B. Karl County Center. However, the county follows the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and workers who interact with vulnerable populations must continue to wear masks for indoor programming.

CDC guidelines strongly recommend 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 COVID-19 transmission levels in the county and update indoor protocols accordingly for both staff and visitors to County facilities.
