Atlantic County Mask Policy

Effective Monday, September 20, 2021, Atlantic County government is re-implementing its face mask policy for all county employees and visitors to county offices and facilities. Due to a surge in COVID-19 cases as a result of the highly transmissible Delta variant, face masks will be required in all indoor public spaces regardless of vaccination status. We appreciate your cooperation with our efforts to protect the health and safety of our employees and residents.
