Scugog library makes some changes after Durham enters red zone

·1 min read

SCUGOG: The Scugog Memorial Public library recently announced new safety measures for the facility.

The new rules, announced recently, were in response to the Region of Durham moving into the red control zone, of the province’s response framework, on Monday, November 23rd.

There will now be a screening and contact info interview held before any patron enters. Library staff are encouraging patrons to “keep their visits as brief as possible” or up to a maximum of 45 minutes. There was also one other change made.

“No room bookings or study/lounge spaces are available at this time,” read a Scugog library press release.

The local library will continue to require masks and social distancing, keep library shelves open to the public for browsing; with items used being isolated from shelves for 72 hours, the selfCheck kiosk will continue to operate and the library will continue to follow the patron limit inside.
