The Library Encourages Healthy Spaces & Best Practices
- Stay home if not feeling well or experiencing flu-like symptoms. Contact a doctor.
- Cover mouth with a tissue, elbow or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Discard used tissues immediately.
- Wash hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Practice social distancing. Try to keep an optimal six-foot distance from other people.
- Minimize the sharing of equipment such as computers, phones and pens — when unavoidable — use sanitizing wipes between uses.
