Adopted 6/29/2020

Face Covering/Face Mask Requirement

For the health and safety of the Gail Borden Public Library staff and customers, the following policy shall be enforced while the Restore Illinois Plan requires face coverings and social distancing in public.

All persons entering the Library must wear a face covering and maintain social distancing (a minimum six-foot distance from all other persons) when practicable. Children under the age of two are exempt from wearing a face covering but must be closely monitored at all times by their caregiver. The Library will provide a face mask free of charge for those individuals who do not have one. Reasonable accommodations are available to those who are medically prevented from or decline to wear a face covering. Those refusing to wear a face covering and/or to maintain a six-foot distance when practicable will be required to leave the Library.

This addendum shall be removed when the State of Illinois has reached Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan or further directives have been issued by the Governor.
