Masks REQUIRED -again

With the sharp rise in COVID-19 Delta cases, masks will again be required in the Fulco libraries as well as other Fulton County offices/buildings. The mask requirement is in effect as of 5 August 2021 for all library patrons - regardless of vaccination status.

If you need information about getting vaccinated, please refer to the previous post (Ask a Librarian).

Ask a Librarian

Other than library questions, the following question has been popular-

How do I schedule a COVID-19 vaccination?

COVID-19 vaccines can protect you and your family. The vaccines are safe and offered at no charge to you. Everyone age 12 and over is eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Within Fulton County there are two sites operated by the Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency and the Fulton County Board of Health. In addition, Fulton County is bringing COVID-19 vaccine to neighborhoods through mobile vaccination units.

Parking is free at all sites. No ID is required.

Youth age 12 – 17 do not have to have a parent present but must have a consent form signed by a parent.

For locations, times, and further information visit:
