Re: Face masks recommended - change in policy


Starting Monday, March 13th, the Durham Literacy Center will be switching to a “masks recommended” policy, but masks are no longer required inside the building.


Staff, students, and volunteers are encouraged to continue wearing masks if they so choose. Wearing a well-fitting mask -  such as a KN95 – protects the wearer from COVID-19 and other airborne viruses, even if others around them are not wearing masks, according to the CDC.


We want everyone to know that wearing a mask is not required, but it is still encouraged.


  • If you feel sick, do not come to the DLC. 

  • If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, wear a mask for at least 6 days after exposure to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Use hand sanitizer and wash hands frequently.

  • Open the windows OR turn on the air purifier in classrooms to circulate air.

  • Wipe down surfaces before and after instruction - wipes are in every classroom.

  • Get vaccinated! 


Please talk with a DLC staff member if you have any concerns or questions. 


Thank you and stay well!

NOTE: We may change our masking policy if Durham County's COVID-19 Community Level goes up again to Medium or High, according to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). 



Help is available at our headquarters in the mornings and evenings.
