Test and Protect
COVID 19 Track and Trace
To ensure the health and safety of everyone using the library, we will ensure physical distancing measures take place. To minimise the chance of exposure to COVID-19, anyone who has symptoms or is self-isolating should not attend.
Face coverings are mandatory in public libraries.
In addition, to assist with contact tracing where a potential outbreak of COVID-19 is linked to specific premises, the library is required to collect minimal contact details from customers. This includes name and contact details. Where people are attending as part of a household, details can be recorded for a single ‘lead member’ of the household rather than every member. If a visit is simply to collect pre-ordered books this information is not required. The information will support NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect service and form part of the effort to suppress COVID-19.
