COVID-19 safety in libraries

Southampton City Libraries are keeping some measures advised by Public Health England to ensure staff and public stay safe.

When you come into our libraries you can expect the following:

  • Hand sanitiser stations
  • Wipes for hard surfaces and computers
  • Increased ventilation
  • Staff may be behind perspex screens or may be choosing to wear face coverings
  • It is important to note that staying at home if unwell and continuing to get a PCR test if you are symptomatic is still a requirement until the changes to testing regulations come into effect from 1 April
  • It is advisable to wear face coverings in busy public places
