The Oregon Health Authority issued new COVID-related guidelines on May 18. These guidelines require staff in businesses to check proof of vaccination status of anyone not wearing a mask. Due to these new guidelines, we will require that all individuals wear masks while in the library building. Lower Umpqua Library District does not have plans to create a policy that would put staff members in the position of checking the vaccine status of individuals. We know this is a confusing time for everyone, and we appreciate the community’s patience and assistance as we work to keep library patrons, visitors, and staff members safe. Please be kind to our library staff on the front lines. They are working hard to keep up with changing guidelines while still doing their important work for all of us.
