Effective immediately, Oshkosh Public Library staff and patrons will no longer be required to wear a mask while in the library.
The Library Board of Trustees voted during their February 24 meeting to end masking, enacted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The move follows a steady decline in COVID-19 cases in our community and a drop in COVID-19 hospitalizations since the peak of the Omicron variant.
“Based on recent data, the board felt that it was the right time to lift the mandate,” said Library Director Jeff Gilderson-Duwe. “Materials will continue to be available via curbside pickup for patrons who prefer a contactless option,” he said.
We hope to see you soon!
