Health and Safety at the Clearview Library District

The health and safety of the Clearview Library District community is our number one priority. We are closely following the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and guidelines from the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the CDC.

Preventative Measures
Windsor-Severance Library

The Windsor-Severance Library is open to the public with the following safety measures in place to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

  • All staff and patrons 3+ must wear face coverings at all times and follow social distancing guidelines.
  • The building will be limited to 50 patrons and staff members at a time. Patrons will be asked to keep visits to two hours or less.
  • Children under 14 are to be accompanied by an adult caregiver at all times.
  • The first hour of daily operations will be reserved for vulnerable individuals (individuals 65+ years old, immunocompromised individuals, or individuals who are pregnant).
  • Patrons are asked to limit visits to browsing materials or connecting to WiFi. A reduced number of Teen and Adult computers will be available for use.
  • Programming will remain virtual.
  • Meeting rooms will remain closed.
  • Materials will continue to be held for a period of time and then wiped down before being placed on the shelf. At that time, the materials will be checked in and removed from your record. There will be no fines or fees applied as a result of additional material processing time.
  • Extra cleaning procedures are in place.

Bookmobile

The bookmobile has returned to its normal neighborhood stop schedule. While visiting the bookmobile please follow these safety guidelines:

  • All staff and patrons 3+ must wear face coverings at all times and follow social distancing guidelines.
  • The bookmobile will be limited to one person or one family unit on board at a time for a maximum of 15 minutes.
  • Children under 14 are to be accompanied by an adult caregiver at all times.

We’re monitoring state, county, and local guidelines, and will keep you updated as our health and safety procedures change as a result of new information.

Regular Health Maintenance

The Windsor-Severance Library (720 3rd Street) is cleaned seven days a week. This includes, but is not limited to, disinfecting restrooms, tables, and hard surfaces. Hand sanitizer and facial tissues are available throughout the building. This same level of care is provided to the bookmobile after each day on the road.

Public Health Procedures

If the situation should escalate, we have procedures in place to help maintain public health and safety, yet minimize disruption to library services. Any future library updates will be posted to this page, as well as our Facebook page.
