Masks and Social Distancing
Masks are required in the Library for all patrons and library staff. This is in keeping with CDC guidelines and Purchase College policy, which states masks are required indoors campus-wide, regardless of vaccination status, while the campus is in a COVID “Orange” or “Yellow” zone (i.e. high or medium risk area).
Library patrons are also encouraged to maintain a social distance between staff or other patrons. Congregating around printers, in stairwells, or in closed/cramped spaces is discouraged. Please use designated footprints while waiting for printers, circulation or reference service. Library staff reserve the right to ask patrons to increase social distance by moving further away, changing position, etc. Please do not move furniture in order to reduce distance between yourself, staff, and patrons.
Library staff reserve the right to enforce the COVID safety policies set out by the College. Failure to comply with these policies may result in referral to the Office of Community Standards, removal from the Library, suspension of library privileges, and/or notification to University Police (UPD). If inappropriate conduct occurs after an initial warning, you will be asked to leave the Library.
