TUCSON, Ariz. — Anyone who enters a public library in Pima County is now required to wear a mask.

The new rule went into effect Friday, said the Pima County Board of Supervisors in a press release.

The county says any individual who refuses to wear a mask will be denied entry.

Those with a medical exemption will be provided curbside assistance.

In addition, beginning Monday, July 20, the Pima County Public Library is moving to a regionally-based model of services aimed at minimizing customer and staff exposure to COVID-19.

Holly Schaffer with Pima County Library says ten libraries will continue to provide computer use, printing, copying, and faxing services:

· Caviglia-Arivaca Library

· Salazar-Ajo Library

· Eckstrom-Columbus Library

· Joyner-Green Valley Library

· Joel D. Valdez Main Library

· Mission Library

· Sam Lena-South Tucson Library

· Murphy-Wilmot Library

· Woods Memorial Library

· Oro Valley Public Library

Libraries not listed will continue provide curbside pick-up.
