Forsyth County Government has updated its mask policy following new CDC guidance and will no longer require masks for those who are vaccinated— except for certain county facilities and activities — beginning Monday, May 24.

Visitors who are not vaccinated will be required to wear a facemask at all times at county facilities. Everyone will still be required to wear a mask at the following:

• Department of Public Health

• Hall of Justice

• Law Enforcement Detention Center

• Smith Reynolds Airport

Everyone will also be required to wear a mask:

• When receiving patient care through the Emergency Services Department.

• When participating in indoor youth programs at places like Cooperative Extension or a library.

Signs will be posted at entrances to county facilities informing the public they must wear a facemask if they’re not vaccinated. County facilities will continue to offer masks to each visitor who wants one or is required to wear one. Anyone who needs a special accommodation can contact the respective department.

There may be special circumstances when County Management may implement stricter requirements for large crowded indoor events or when serving vulnerable populations.
