Masks required in city’s buildings

The City of North Liberty now requires masks in its public, indoor spaces. These spaces include the Community Center, City Hall and Council Chambers. This requirement will be in effect while Johnson County sees substantial and high levels of community coronavirus transmission.

This policy, in line with public health guidance from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Johnson County Public Health, is targeted to help protect the community from the highly contagious Delta variant of the virus that causes COVID-19, which is responsible for increasing hospitalizations, including among children.

While the rapid spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant is concerning, vaccines provide excellent protection against serious illness and help protect others who are vulnerable to the disease. The best way to protect yourself, your family and your community from COVID-19 is to get a free vaccination, available for those 12 and older at local pharmacies and hospitals. Visit vaccinate.iowa.gov to find a site for a free, safe and effective vaccination convenient for you.

The city’s approach to its public health policies are a dial, not a switch, as we provide targeted mitigation in line with guidance from our public health partners. As guidance and conditions change, we will update our policies.

Mayor: Please Wear a Mask. We All Have the Responsibility.

From Mayor Terry L. Donahue:

We once again face rising illness we were not wholly anticipating having to deal with.

Over past two days, I’ve weighed what actions should be taken as well as questions being asked concerning Covid-19, particularly in light of the more contagious Delta variant. And so, I am asking those in our community to, please, wear masks once again. And I also ask those who choose not to wear them to reconsider their respective personal positions.

I do not want to lose gains we have made getting back to our individual routines, socialization with others and businesses.

However, the overriding issue is how to protect our young people, especially those under 12 who are not yet eligible for vaccination. I am not a public health expert, but those who are cannot be clearer: It is better that any and all persons who work in any school system as well as students wear masks. This is true especially until the time those under 12 can receive the necessary vaccines.

The City of North Liberty has mandated that all persons who go into our public buildings must wear a mask. We ask that private businesses evaluate their practices to determine their best course of action in working with the public.

We have the responsibility to ourselves, our families, co-workers and neighbors to do the proper thing.
