Library COVID Monitoring

The Library COVID Monitoring Dashboard provides daily and long-term insight to high-risk behaviors occurring in the library. Multiple times a day, library employees visually survey the building and count behaviors in three categories:

  • patrons with masks removed for any reason,
  • patrons gathered in a group of 3 or more, and
  • the presence of food and/or drink regardless of the mask status of the patron.

The official collection times are 10am, 1pm, and 4pm. However, library employees additionally record behaviors any time they see them occurring. The information in this dashboard is meant to provide patrons with a way to assess their risk when visiting the library. It does not provide a precise picture of high-risk behaviors occurring at any given moment, nor is it meant to admonish any visitor to the library.
