Covid-19 Information & Updates

Covid-19 Updates

Current Update from the Interim Library Director 2/23/2022

Based on recent changes in recommendations by the Washtenaw County Health Department and the Michigan Department of Health & Human Servicesbeginning Monday, February 28:

  • Masks will be strongly recommended for all members of the public in the library. We will continue to make masks available at library entrances.
  • Library staff members are still required to wear masks. If you choose not to wear a mask in the library, please be respectful of both library staff and other members of the public who may still be masked up.
  • Masks are still required for in-person library programs for anyone 2 years of age and up. Our in-person programming is currently limited to storytimes and kids’ book clubs, and we want those to be safe and healthy environments.
  • Social distancing is still mandatory for all. Please maintain at least 3 feet distance from other library users and library staff and respect that library staff members may need to remain behind Plexiglas barriers at our service desks at times.
  • WCHD Isolation & Quarantine guidelines are still in effect. Please do not come into the library if you have tested positive for or exhibited symptoms of COVID-19.

Please remember that, as we have seen over the past two years, the COVID-19 virus can be unpredictable. Future variants and/or increases in countywide transmission rates could make new safety protocols and requirements necessary.

We hope that local trends continue to stay encouraging and that we are all moving toward a healthier future!

See you at the library,

Karrie Waarala
