ROCKDALE COUNTY, GA– Rockdale County government will begin returning to normal as the county reopens most facilities to the public on Tuesday, July 6. All county facilities will reopen to the public, with the exception of Johnson Park, Senior Services and Animal Services, the county said in a statement.
The county will follow CDC guidelines and no longer require masks to be worn by employees or citizens once the facilities officially reopen to the public.

Fully vaccinated people may resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. People who are not fully vaccinated should continue to practice physical distancing and should wear a mask, unless unable to do so for medical reasons or if they are a child under the age of 2 years old.
