McDONOUGH — Vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors entering Henry County facilities are required to wear a face mask until further notice due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases.

County Manager Cherie Hobson Matthews said the new mandate is due to the Centers for Disease Control’s updated guidelines.

In addition to masks, visitors will have their temperature taken. Anyone who registers a fever must leave the building immediately.

Henry County is listed as a high transmission county. According to the state Department of Public Health, Henry County reported 399 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 for the seven-day period of July 24 to July 30. The county has a positivity rate of 11.5%.
