CCPL and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    CCPL's COVID-19 Safety Measures Plan

    To help ensure a safe environment for our library patrons and staff, the Carmel Clay Public Library is taking the following steps to minimize the chance of spreading the COVID-19 virus:

    Employee Health Screening: Library staff are asked to take their temperature before each work shift and are not to report to work if they have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher. Staff who are experiencing a fever or other CDC-recognized symptoms of COVID-19 are asked to remain at home and to contact their healthcare provider.

    Enhanced Cleaning Protocols: Library staff clean high-touch surfaces multiple times a day. The library facility is cleaned by a professional cleaning service on a nightly basis. Returned library materials are quarantined for 72 hours before being placed back into circulation. Children's play areas and materials are unavailable.

    Availability of Hand-Washing Facilities and Personal Hygiene Measures: Library patrons and staff have access to multiple restrooms with hand-washing procedure guidelines posted at the sinks. Hand sanitizer is available at key locations throughout the facilities.

    Social Distancing Requirements: Library staff are required to wear face masks in the vicinity of other staff and at all times in public areas. Patrons are also required to wear face masks within the library unless they are under age 3 or have a health condition that restricts the use of a mask. Physical distancing of six feet or more should be maintained by library staff and patrons. Barriers have been placed at service desks. Seating has been limited. Curbside pickup of holds and virtual online programs are being offered.
