CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - When community members enter the Natrona County Library, the first couple of things they see is a sign saying masks are required and hand sanitizing stations.

Megan Bratton, the public relations and marketing manager, said the library passed a resolution to follow what county commissioners decided last week.

Bratton said community members can stay in the library where masks are enforced. “We are not going to be like other places where we make you put it on when you walk in and don’t do anything after that. If you take it off you will be asked to leave,” Bratton said.

She added masks are available at the front. Community members can still use the creation station and the computer.

There aren’t as many computers open as there would be normally so people can social distance. Bratton adds they are enforcing this rule to protect everyone.

“It’s for everyone including our staff. If we get an outbreak and don’t have enough people to work then we’d have to shut the library down,” Bratton said.

She added that there is also no food or drink allowed in anymore because of the mask resolution.
