The system, however, is not taking any chances and is closing the branch for deep cleaning.

The staff who were ID'ed by contact tracing will be required to self-isolate for 14 days and are strongly recommended to seek testing. 

The library system is aiming to have the Main branch reopened by the end of the week.
