Updated Visiting Guidelines

  • For everyone’s safety:
    • Unvaccinated and not fully vaccinated individuals, including children, must wear a mask inside the Library, its meeting rooms, and auditorium.
    • Fully vaccinated* individuals can go unmasked, but may choose to wear a mask.
      • NEW CDC recommendation: To maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission. San Diego County is an area of high transmission.
      • Wearing a mask is most important if you have a weakened immune system or if, because of your age or an underlying medical condition, you are at increased risk for severe disease, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated.
    • Children under 2 years old and people with certain medical conditions are not required to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

*Fully vaccinated means two weeks or more after the 2nd dose of Pfizer/Moderna vaccine or 2 weeks after a single dose of J&J vaccine

  • Plexiglass barriers have been installed at the front service desk and between the public computers.
