Consistent with the Governor's efforts to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all public libraries across Pennsylvania will be closed until further notice!
We encourage all members of the community to employ the following social distancing techniques:
Keep at least six feet between yourself and another person in all public places
Avoid close contact, including handshakes and hugging.
Limit in-person meetings.
*Prevention measures are similar to those utilized against the common cold and flu. Those measures include frequent hand washing and avoiding touching one’s face with unwashed hands.
*The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends you cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others *You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others.
The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
It is essential to conduct more frequent cleaning in common areas and on commonly touched surfaces, including in dining and housing spaces.
