We continue to train the team in the CDC Universal Guidelines for cleaning and we are practicing the safe handling of all library materials. As a result of the REALM project data, we have extended the quarantine of library materials from 3 to 4 days. We appreciate your patience as we plan to safely open. We will be happy to see you in the library when we are ready.
