Ellsworth Public Library

Masking Policy

We are following the CDC’s recommended actions based on current level of community transmission in Hancock County.  When the CDC lists the community transmission rate in Hancock County as HIGH (red) masking is required in the building.  When the CDC lists community transmission as MEDIUM (yellow) or LOW (green) indoor masking is optional.  These recommendations are updated weekly on Thursdays and we are staying currant with that guidance.  Masks and color-coded signs will be provided at each entrance.
