Library will assess schedule and time cards to determine which employees may have been exposed to the virus and need to take additional precautions:

  • If a patron is confirmed to have COVID-19, and presents possible exposure, the Director will inform employees while maintaining confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • The Library will contact the Tompkins County Health Department and follow their recommendations.


Cleaning and Disinfecting

  • TCPL will follow Tompkins County guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting. Wear additional personal protective equipment (PPE) depending on the setting and disinfectant product you are using.
