Mask Mandate Expiration

The Public Health indoor mask order and Mayor's Executive Order 7 expired on May 14 per the Metro Public Health Department. Because of this, NPL is no longer requiring customers to wear masks to enter our locations.

However, we still highly encourage that all library visitors and NPL employees follow CDC guidance, which recommends that people who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear masks and social distance in our facilities.
