Reminder: COVID Operations Plan

January 5, 2022 | Library News

The library’s COVID operations plan is regularly reviewed, and updated as needed, based on new guidance and information about the COVID-19 virus and ongoing pandemic.

APL has been operating in the “high” phase since August 2021.

Library operations in the “high” phase are currently as follows:

  • These in-person services are suspended: meeting rooms, all indoor and outdoor programs.
  • Indoor seating is allowed with social distancing in place.
  • Study rooms may be used with the following requirements: maximum of two people per study room at a time, the door will stay open for airflow, and masks must be worn.
  • Book and material returns must be done via interior and exterior book drops.
  • All other services are available, including: browsing, pickup and checkout of materials, computer use, purchasing/replenishing CDTA Navigator bus passes, printing/copying/faxing/scanning, and reference assistance.
  • Everyone, over age 2, must continue to wear a mask in all library buildings.
