Masks no longer required but strongly encouraged in City buildings and facilities
Recently, the CDC has shifted its focus from community transmission to community levels as the basis for their guidance regarding recommended COVID-19 preventative measures. Montgomery County currently has a “low” community level as of this past Monday, March 7. The City of Takoma Park will be adjusting our protocols and lifting our mask mandate.
Effective Wednesday, March 9th, masks are not required indoors but strongly encouraged for any unvaccinated visitors in any City buildings or facilities, where social distancing is challenging, and/or when there is direct interaction between the public and employees.
As safety and health remain our #1 priority, the City of Takoma Park will continue to have KN95/N95 masks and rapid test kits available for the public and employees as necessary. We will continue to monitor the community levels and will be prepared to shift our protocols when appropriate.
