COVID-19 – Library Update: March 20 2020
Masterton District Library is open
Masterton District Council wants to reassure our customers that we are taking a sensible and vigilant approach to the continuing situation regarding the COVID-19 virus.
We are continuing to align our practices with guidance from the Ministry of Health.
But, we need your help – if you are feeling unwell or have been asked to self-isolate we’d love to talk to you over the phone, rather than seeing you face-to-face. Sharing is NOT caring in this situation!
If you have recently arrived in New Zealand from any country except those listed in Category 2 on the Ministry of Health website (excluding airport transit), have been in close contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or been asked to self-isolate, please stay home and contact us about how we can assist you with reading materials during this difficult time.
We are working hard to plan for the possibility of COVID-19 coming to Wairarapa and are taking measures to ensure we can still provide services to our community. These include:
- Cleaning high-use surfaces hourly, throughout the library.
- Hand sanitiser is available for our customers.
- All toys have been removed from the children’s areas.
Please keep an eye on our events page for updates in programming.
