When the Lincoln City City Hall and Community Center reopens to the public on June 7, masks will still be required for visitors entering buildings.
OHA Mask Guidance:
In light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) May 13 announcement regarding masking guidance, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reviewed and updated Oregon’s official masking guidance. This page was updated on May 19, 2021 to reflect those updates.
Note: Businesses, employers and faith institutions now have the option to adjust their masking guidance to allow fully vaccinated individuals to no longer wear a mask in their establishments. Businesses, employers and faith institutions doing so must have a policy in place to check the vaccination status of all individuals before they enter their establishment. Businesses, employers and faith institutions who do not create such policies will maintain the same masking guidance listed below, regardless of an individual’s vaccination status.
If you have a medical condition that makes it hard to breathe or a disability that prevents you from wearing a mask, you can request an accommodation from the business or venue or transit authority.
OHA does not recommend wearing a plastic face shield alone. While face shields can be very good at blocking droplets, they are not as good at stopping aerosols that can go around the shield. OHA recommends face shields only be used on a limited basis, for example when talking to someone who is deaf or hard of hearing and needs to read lips to communicate.
