Beginning today, masks are once again required at all indoor Linn County-owned facilities.
All employees and visitors – regardless of vaccination status – are required to wear face masks to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Linn County Supervisor Stacey Walker says they’re not doing this for political reasons – they’re doing this because they believe it will keep people safe. Walker says the information they’ve received about the Delta variant, its transmissibility, its lethality and the rate of increase in their community has prompted the Linn County Board of Supervisors to take this action.
Linn County will have disposable face coverings available for the public at each County building.
Linn County buildings remain open to walk-in traffic. However, residents and businesses may also conduct County business online, by phone, by mail or by drop boxes located outside County buildings.
