An employee of Lake Villa District Library is under quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19. Upon notification, library administration initiated contact tracing protocols and instructed the staff member to immediately self-quarantine.
Close contact (defined as being within six feet with or without the use of a face covering, for fifteen minutes or longer, within a 48-hour period, “6-15-48” rule) with library staff or members of the public was not discovered.
The library instituted increased cleaning of all high-traffic areas, thorough cleaning of the building each evening, and separate deep cleanings of the areas where the employee works.
LVDL has a face mask requirement and other safety protocols including capacity limits, sneeze guards at all service desks, accessible hand sanitizer, regular surface cleaning, and quarantining of returned books and other library materials.
We will continue to provide updates to our website and social media as needed. Thank you for your continued support during this challenging time. Should you have any questions, please email the Library Director, Mikael Jacobsen.
