Update to face mask requirements at Council venues
Published on 08 January 2021
Given the risk of COVID-19 transmission across Greater Sydney, the NSW Government has introduced a new Public Health Order which makes face masks mandatory in a range of indoor settings, including shopping centres.
Due to their location in shopping centres, from 4 January staff and customers at Top Ryde Library, Top Ryde Customer Service Centre and West Ryde Library are required to wear masks while at these venues. From 8 January, staff and customers will be required to wear face masks at all City of Ryde libraries.
Children under 12 or those who have a physical or mental health illness or condition, or disability, that make wearing a mask unsuitable are exempt.
Anyone who does not wear a mask at these venues without a valid exemption will be denied entry.
Members of the public visiting other indoor Council venues are encouraged to wear a mask while in attendance.
