All library staff who were potentially exposed will be screened and closely monitored before returning to work.
Professional deep cleaning services will take place during the closure.
The library is working closely with the Jackson County Health Department to determine all necessary and additional next steps.
The health and safety of staff and customers are MCPL’s highest priorities.
