Enhanced health and safety protocols are required to continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and this will impact how library service is offered. Safety of staff and community members is the primary concern. We will be adopting a phased in approach which will allow us to review and revise health and safety measures as necessary. In order to allow constant revision of procedures they will not be attached to this policy but will be kept separately in the Procedures binder under the direction of the Head Librarian.
To provide the necessary conditions for health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic the Fort St James Public Library will be guided by the recommendations and regulations of Worksafe BC, the Provincial Government and local health authorities as re-opening strategies are developed and as they apply to our unique library’s and community’s abilities and needs.
