KAUKAUNA — Following new CDC guidance, the Kaukauna Public Library earlier this week said they will require face coverings now that county rates have moved to the high category.

Curbside services are once again available.

The Outagamie County Board on Tuesday evening approved an order requiring all county employees to wear face masks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Post-Crescent.

​The order took, which took effect Monday, was announced late last week by County Executive Tom Nelson. It requires all county employees and those visiting county-owned buildings, facilities and grounds to wear a mask.

The new CDC guidance, issued July 27, 2021, notes that infections happen in only a small proportion of people who are fully vaccinated, even with the Delta variant.

However, preliminary evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people who do become infected with the Delta variant can spread the virus to others, according to the CDC.

To reduce their risk of becoming infected with the Delta variant and potentially spreading it to others, CDC recommends that fully vaccinated people wear a mask in public indoor settings if they are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
