The Coronavirus has been a hot topic at the Information Desk of late. We think, therefore, that this is a good time to share with you places where you can find reliable information. For a local perspective, the Westchester County Department of Health’s coronavirus page is a good place to start. The State’s Department of Health Coronavirus site has information regarding how many people in the State have tested positive for the virus. Of course they get much of their information from the Center for Disease Control .
At the Library itself, we are making sure to follow our regular flu season procedures. We’ve got plenty of hand sanitizer available throughout the building, for example. Keep in mind that the same common sense precautions for flu season, wash your hands, cover your mouth, stay home if you are sick, etc. also work for this outbreak.
