COVID-19 Cases

Calgary Public Library recognizes the vital role libraries play in our community and we are committed to providing a clean and safe environment. We are actively following the recommendations made by Alberta Health Services. 

As part of our commitment to health and safety, we will be publicly sharing any updates on confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Library that may have come into contact with the public. To respect the privacy of our staff, will not release personal information related to these cases.  

All Library locations have public health protocols in place, including hand sanitizing stations and physical distancing. Locations are cleaned throughout the day and have a full professional cleaning each evening. Library staff and visitors are not to enter any location if they are experiencing symptoms, have travelled recently, and / or have come in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19. Everyone is required to wear a mask inside Library locations at this time.
