Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Morrisson-Reeves Library
We are aware of the recent concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in public spaces and would like to share with you how we are addressing this issue in our library:
- Elevated cleaning measures throughout the building including but not limited to these frequently touched surfaces: computer stations, keyboards, public service desks, seating areas, restrooms and play areas.
- As in current practice, we will continue to clean the covers of all library materials as they are returned to the library
- Reminders for staff and patrons of proper hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette
- Covering coughs and sneezes with something other than your hand
- Washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth
- Staff are encouraged to stay home if they are ill or have a fever
We would like to remind visitors that libraries are shared public spaces. For the health and safety of others, please be thoughtful about coming into our library if you are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms. (See symptoms here.) Please do your part to stop the spread of germs.
