COVID-19

Per Executive Order 2020-145 stores of less than 50,000 square feet of customer floor space must limit the number of people in the store (including employees) to 25% of the total occupancy limits established by the State Fire Marshal or a local fire marshal.  This means that for the Main Library only five (5) patrons at a time may be in the building at one time.  The Fairview Branch allows three (3) patrons in building at one time.  Both locations are open by appointment only, please call to schedule your appointment.

Per Executive Order 2020-153 a face covering/mask is required for entry into the Oscoda County Library.

Although a face covering is strongly encouraged even for individuals not required to wear one, the requirement to wear a face covering does not apply to individuals who:
(a) Are younger than five years old (and, per guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), children under the age of two should not wear a mask);
(b) Cannot medically tolerate a face covering;
(c) Are eating or drinking while seated at a food service establishment;
(d) Are exercising when wearing a face covering would interfere with the activity;
(e) Are receiving a service for which temporary removal of the face covering is necessary;
(f) Are entering a business or are receiving a service and are asked to temporarily remove a face covering for identification purposes;
(g) Are communicating with someone who is deaf, deafblind, or hard of hearing and where the ability to see the mouth is essential to communication;
(h) Are actively engaged in a public safety role, including but not limited to law enforcement, firefighters, or emergency medical personnel, and where wearing a mask would seriously interfere in the performance of their public safety responsibilities;
(i) Are at a polling place for purposes of voting in an election;
(j) Are officiating at a religious service; or
(k) Are giving a speech for broadcast or to an audience, provided that the audience is at least six feet away from the speaker.
