Stage 3: Library Building Opens for In-Person Service with Precautionary Measures in Place

Library boards in consultation with their library director will determine when to advance to stage 3 of the yellow phase (as staffing levels and supplies allow). Additional guidance may be issued by the commonwealth as conditions warrant.

1. Allow patrons inside facility for limited in-person services:

1.1. Maintain social distancing of six feet. However, building occupancy must not exceed greater than 50 percent of the number stated on the library's certificate of occupancy as per commonwealth's guidance for businesses.
1.2. Prohibit gatherings larger than 25 people at meetings, programs, events, etc. Gatherings of 25 or less must follow social distancing guidelines as per the commonwealth's guidance for businesses.

2. Post signage throughout the library to mandate social distancing for both customers and employees.
