COVID-19 Information & Resources
Vaccinated & Unvaccinated Should Wear Face Masks Indoors
As of July 27, the CDC recommends both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals wear face masks in workplaces, public buildings, and stores in counties with substantial or high spread rates, which includes Cuyahoga County. The delta variant is likely driving the surge in new COVID-19 cases.

Masks Mandatory Inside Heights Libraries
Employees and visitors over the age of 2 need to wear face masks while inside any Heights Library branch. The change in mask policy by Heights Library was prompted by the rise of the Delta variant of COVID-19. The policy about use of computers, study rooms and time spent in the library remains unchanged.
