Effective August 10th, the Town of Avon implemented a new mask requirement for all Town facilities, including the Avon Free Public Library.
Employees and visitors will be required to wear a mask upon entering indoor Town facilities, regardless of their vaccination status. This action is being taken because of the increase in positive cases of COVID-19 due to the spread of the Delta variant; Hartford County has now reached levels of “high community transmission.” This requirement is consistent with the recommendations of the CT Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and is important because new data show that fully vaccinated people who are infected with the Delta variant might be infectious and might potentially spread the virus to others.
Please help us to protect our staff and your neighbors by wearing your mask at all times. We appreciate your patience, understanding, and cooperation.
