The Fulton County Board of Commissioners announced today that it will reinstate the indoor mask mandate. Starting Thursday, August 5, 2021, all employees and those visiting Fulton County facilities will be required to wear a mask indoors. Fulton County Chief Operating Officer Anna Roach advised the Board that Fulton County would return to requiring masks inside its facilities.
“Our goal is to ensure the safety of everyone that comes into this building and all Fulton County buildings,” said Fulton County Chairman Robb Pitts. “It is vital that this mask mandate be for those who are vaccinated as well as unvaccinated individuals especially since we all are still facing the threat of a contagious pandemic now known as the Delta variant.”
Although breakthrough cases are possible but rare, the Board and Fulton County Officials are working to remain proactive when it comes to protecting workers and residents. COVID-19 cases have increased by 300% over the last three weeks. Hospitalization rates have also increased, and 99% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients are unvaccinated. More than 4.1 million vaccines have been administered throughout Georgia – 515,000 of those were issued in Fulton County. The County is implementing guidelines consistent with those currently recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

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.
