The City of Scottsbluff requires masks be worn when in the Lied Scottsbluff Public Library. Masks must be worn at all times and cover both mouth and nose. - Effective November 10, 2020
With the number of COVID-19 cases rising in the region, the City of Scottsbluff promotes and practices the following precautions as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services, and Panhandle Public Health District:
•Stay at least 6 feet away from others, whenever possible. This is very important in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
•Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others. This helps reduce the risk of spread both by close contact and by airborne transmission.
•Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
•Avoid crowded indoor spaces and ensure indoor spaces are properly ventilated by bringing in outdoor air as much as possible. In general, being outdoors and in spaces with good ventilation reduces the risk of exposure to infectious respiratory droplets.
•Stay home and isolate from others when sick.
•Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
