Vaccinated Or Not – Masks Now Required At Everett Library Branches

July 27, 2021

Both the main Everett Library and the south Everett branch on Evergreen Way are now requiring everyone to wear a mask while visiting. Here’s a message posted by Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin on Facebook Monday announcing the decision.

Masks are back at Everett libraries.

(Starting tomorrow) patrons to the Everett Public Library will be required to wear a mask, regardless of their vaccination status. Throughout this pandemic we have been working in close partnership with Snohomish County DEM and the Snohomish Health District to do what we can to keep this community safe. To fight climbing cases, our Health Officer is now urging residents to mask up in public indoor spaces to further reduce risk. Our goal is to protect the health of ALL library patrons, especially those who are more vulnerable to COVID-19, those who due to a medical reason are unable to be vaccinated, and young children who are not yet eligible for the vaccine. We want the library to be a safe space for all. We will have masks available if you need one. If you do not wish to wear a mask, you can still access library resources through our curbside service: epls.org/363/Curbside-Pickup
If you haven’t yet been vaccinated, please do so. According to the Snohomish Health District, many areas of Everett have not yet reached a 60% vaccination rate. Getting the vaccine helps protect you from hospitalization and death from COVID-19, and your vaccination helps protect your loved ones, and our community.
Be safe. Be well.
