On January 14 2021, HPL was notified of a Central employee who tested COVID-positive. While at work, the employee was wearing appropriate personal protective equipment and maintained physical distancing. A thorough cleaning and disinfection of Central's Basement, Floor 1 and Floor 2 was completed. HPL is working with Hamilton Public Health for contact tracing. We wish the employee a quick and full recovery.
Bookmobile service is paused until Saturday January 16, 2021 as a precautionary measure, so we can deep-clean after a staff member at Central staff went home ill and another was notified as a close contact of a COVID-19 positive case. Bookmobile items on affected floors are being quarantined out of an abundance of caution.
