An employee of Warren-Newport Public Library is under quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19. Upon notification, library administration initiated contact tracing protocols and instructed the staff member to immediately self-quarantine.
Close contact (defined as being within six feet with or without the use of a face covering, for fifteen minutes or longer, within a 48-hour period) with members of the public was not discovered. The Library building is currently closed due to COVID mitigations. WNPL has instituted increased cleaning of all high-traffic areas, thorough cleaning of the building each evening, and separate deep cleanings of the areas where the employee works.
