The Winchester branch of the SDG Library is to reopen today following a one-day closure after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

Sanitization and contact tracing procedures have been implemented according to Eastern Ontario Health Unit protocols.

“We are following guidelines prescribed to us by our own internal health and safety framework, as well as the protocols outlined by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit,” said Karen Franklin, director of library services. “At this time we are confident that this is an isolated case with an extremely low risk to the community at large.”
