COVID-19 Updates

New Guidelines - in detail

SUNY Broome students, faculty and staff visiting the Library are expected to adhere to the safety guidelines outlined on the SUNY Broome COVID-19 information site
 
If you choose to visit the library, keep these rules in mind:

  • Maintain 3 feet of social/physical distance between yourself and others.  This helps decrease viral spread via exhaled respiratory droplets.
  • Wear a mask.  Research indicates that a mask can significantly reduce the amount of virus spread via exhaled respiratory droplets.  Since a person infected with Covid-19 can be asymptomatic and not know they are sick, wearing a mask protects others!
  • Refrain from eating and drinking in the building.  Mask-wearing is not conducive to eating and drinking, and food waste/potential spillage creates additional work for our cleaning staff.
  • Any visitor that feels ill will not be allowed on campus and are required to stay off campus.

Faculty, students and staff are reminded to use hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes provided by the College to sanitize their hands as well as surfaces within the library such as tables, chairs, shared keyboards and mice. Hand sanitizer machines are also available at the entrances of the library.
 
Plexiglass barriers have been installed at all service points and directional signage will assist with traffic flow to minimize person-to-person contact.
 
Library staff will wear a face covering or mask at service desks and public spaces.
If you are a person with a disability and need an accommodation, contact Access Services at circulation@sunybroome.edu  / (607) 778-5020 or the Accessibility Resources Office at  aro@sunybroome.edu  / (607) 778-5150.
 
Per the SUNY Broome guidelines, any visitor that feels ill will not be allowed on campus and is required to stay off campus.
