Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Announces Mask Requirements Are Lifted If Persons Are Vaccinated

May 21, 2021 (Fairbanks, AK) – Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Bryce Ward has issued the following statement regarding the wearing of masks by the public and employees in borough buildings: 

“After review and evaluation of CDC and OSHA guidelines, we will make the following modifications to the Borough’s COVID-19 mitigation measures effective June 1, 2021, to exempt vaccinated individuals from the face-covering requirement for Borough Facilities. The CDC still recommends that masks be worn and social distancing be practiced in certain places, such as visiting a doctor’s office or traveling via public transportation, via a bus, plane, or a train, or visiting a long-term care facility. Individuals using Borough Facilities will not be asked or required to verify vaccination. Vaccines continue to be widely available in the Fairbanks area, with pop-up clinics accessible. Search Facebook for @SleevesupforsummerFNSB. We will update the Borough’s risk matrix, the mitigation measures, and policies by June 1.”

CLARIFICATION: As a reminder even if you are fully vaccinated, per CDC, you are still required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation, traveling into, within, or out of the U.S., and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
