Library Operations and Covid-19

Blue Island Public Library strives to create a safe environment for all staff and visitors, and is continuing to follow guidance issued by public health authorities. On February 28, 2022, state and local mask mandates were lifted. The CDC recently updated the Chicago and Cook County Covid-19 Community level from ‘low’ to ‘medium’. While hospitalizations and deaths from Covid remain low, in the interest of protecting the health of those at risk for severe disease the Library is strongly recommending that visitors to the library wear a mask while using the facility. Thank yo for all that you do to keep the library a safe environment for all.
