READING MAYOR EDDIE MORÁN UPDATED MASK POLICY
FOR CITY FACILITIES


READING – August 13, 2021: Today, Mayor Eddie Morán of the City of Reading announced he has updated the mask policy for all City properties:
"In consultation with the Office of Emergency Management Services (EMS) for the City of Reading and the Fire Marshal, all City employees and visitors will be required to wear facial masks in all City-owned buildings beginning Monday, August 16th.

This decision comes upon the recommendation of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is also consistent with the policy instituted by the County of Berks for all of its employees and visitors.

This decision was not taken lightly. However, due to the mix of vaccinated and non-vaccinated populations along with increasing infections stemming from the Delta variant, I feel it is important to reimplement masking for everyone's safety.

In addition, we are providing our inspectors and those who interact directly with the public, KN-95 masks for maximum protection.
Please, let's keep practicing CDC guidelines and get vaccinated when recommended by a Primary Care Physician. Thank you.
