COVID-19

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.

To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Windsor-Severance Library will be closed beginning Saturday, November 21, 2020.

  • Bookdrops at the Town of Severance Town Hall and in front of the Windsor-Severance Library are open for returns.
  • Library Takeout remains available for curbside, contactless check out of materials.
  • The bookmobile will maintain its normal routes for delivery of materials. Community members will not be allowed on board for browsing.

Preventative Measures

Windsor-Severance Library

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

  • Staff must check their temperature upon entering the building.
  • Staff must wear face coverings at all times and follow social distancing guidelines.
  • The building will be limited to 15 staff members at a time.
  • Extra cleaning procedures are in place.

In line with the most recent data available and practices statewide, materials will be held for 72 hours 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.

Bookmobile

The bookmobile will continue its normal neighborhood stop schedule to deliver library materials. At this time, community members will not be allowed on board to browse materials.

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. In addition, we installed a new air filtration system in mid-November 2020 that works to kill bacteria, virus, and mold pathogens in the air.

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.
