Masks are Required at all City Facilities

During the March 16 meeting and after extensive debate, the City Council directed staff to reimplement the policy requirement for face masks or face coverings for customers visiting any City facility. This requirement will stay in place until June 30, at which point Council will review the policy again. 

It is important to note that the state remains a long way from herd immunity and most health experts warn that now is not the time to reduce or curtail our standard COVID-19 protocols. 

The City has continued to require employees to wear masks when at work and when serving the public with frequent face-to-face encounters.

We're Open! 

The Branch Connection has gradually reopened to members starting Monday, March 15, after being closed for almost a year.

We are excited and look forward to welcoming everyone back! We have adopted a safe process to allow access to the facility and current programming. 

In this facility, patrons are required to wear masks when not exercising, even when vaccinated. That means if you’re walking in the hallways, transitioning to a different piece of equipment, or moving about the facility, you’re required to wear a mask. We are happy to provide you with a mask if needed.
