Mask Mandate for Cobb County Facilities

August 18, 2021

With the surge in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, our public health partners have asked us to help slow the spread of the virus and protect those who utilize and work at county facilities. Effective August 20th, 2021, in conformance with CDC guidance, all visitors will be required to wear a mask of face covering when entering enclosed Cobb County facilities. Outdoor facilities such as parks and amphitheaters are excluded, but all indoor facilities are included, including restrooms. We realize that returning to masking practices is not what anyone wants; however, since the County has been identified by the CDC as a COVID-19 high transmission area, we must implement protocols to ensure we are minimizing the spreading of this virus.

If you do not have a mask upon entering a covered county facility, we will provide one for you. We ask for your continued support, patience and adherence. When the CDC guidance changes, we will update our policy to ensure protocol alignment.
