The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact library services. Libraries play a critical role (both in person and virtually) in communities and in higher education institutions and schools. In many areas, libraries have closed voluntarily or have been closed by state and federal governments; yet, many have continued to provide virtual or remote library services. While some libraries have remained open, others remain closed (but still have books or other library materials being returned) or are planning to reopen. Thus, there is a need for guidance on maintaining safe library facilities, for both library employees and patrons. This document is intended to provide guidance and considerations for a range of libraries including community, higher education or school libraries.
