For information regarding vaccines, please visit Halton Hills COVID-19

As of September 22, 2021, the Halton Hills Public Library is following the requirements of the Provincewide Roadmap to Reopen - Step 3. The provincial government has not included public libraries as one of the higher risk indoor settings that require patrons to be fully vaccinated or show proof of vaccination. Screening, mask wearing, physical distancing and capacity limits, remain in place. 

All visitors and staff entering the library branches are required to complete the COVID-19 screening protocol.

Facility protocols

For anyone visiting the Library Branches, we ask that you keep practicing preventative measures:  

Screening

All visitors and staff entering the library branches are screened.

Screening questions adhere to the direction from Halton Region’s Medical Officer of Health to help determine the likelihood of a person’s exposure to the COVID-19 virus.

The screening protocol is available online and the community is encouraged to complete screening in advance and on the day of attending a municipal facility where they will show the ‘green check mark’ on their mobile device. Facility ambassadors will also help with on-site, in-person screening. The screening program will keep an attendance log for 30 days in the event that contact tracing is required by Halton Public Health. After this period, data is automatically deleted.

Masks
As per Halton Region regulations, masks are mandatory at all Town facilities, so we ask that you please wear one in the Library.
Physically distancing
To assist with physical distancing, plexiglass has been installed at all service desks, spacing/distancing markers are throughout the Libraries, and signage has been posted for required spacing in elevators and study rooms. We’ve added additional spacing between furniture and computers.
Cleaning

Maintenance and Library staff regularly disinfect all high-touch surface areas. Hand sanitizer is available for public use when entering and leaving the facility and in the washrooms. Wipes for surfaces are available upon request.

We hope these controls will continue to make your visit comfortable and stress free.

We ask that if you are feeling unwell, please stay home. Items can be renewed online and items ready for pick up can be extended. Simply call us for assistance at 905-873-2681 or log into your library account at www.hhpl.on.ca.
