COLUMBUS—During a special session held this afternoon, Columbus Metropolitan Library’s (CML) Board of Trustees approved an indoor mask requirement for all CML library customers, regardless of their vaccination status, beginning tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 10. The vote comes after Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther issued an indoor mask requirement order for the City of Columbus.
Of CML’s 23 library locations, 15 are within Columbus city limits. Today’s vote by CML’s Board of Trustees extends that indoor mask order to include all 23 library locations, including those eight located outside of Columbus: CML’s Canal Winchester, Dublin, Hilliard, Gahanna, New Albany, Reynoldsburg, Southeast and Whitehall branches.
CML staff members have been required to wear masks, regardless of their vaccination status, since earlier this summer.
