Health & Safety Procedures

  • To comply with physical distancing rules, only one (1) person can be in the room at a time. Please make a note in the Additional Comments field should your meeting require more than one person (e.g. caregiver, additional family member).
  • Non-medical masks or face coverings must be worn at all times while in the Library.
  • Please note that active screening and contact tracing will be required when using Library meeting rooms for this service. Staff on-site will complete this screening and contact tracing. You may also complete the provincial COVID-19 customer screening tool, and show staff the results on your mobile device. If you answer yes to any of the COVID-19 Symptoms, you will be denied entry and your appointment can be re-scheduled for a future date.
  • Only limited staff assistance may be provided due to public health restrictions and staffing capacities.
  • Please see the Library's Service Updates page for General Health Measures and Safety Plan.
