Masks and Social Distancing
Masks are encouraged, but optional, in the Library for all patrons and library staff. This is in keeping with Purchase College policy, which states that “we are currently in an area of low (Green zone) transmission. Masks are optional in most cases.”
While not required, masks are still very much welcome…we must respect each other’s choices, comfort level, health history, and unique circumstances.
Library patrons are encouraged to maintain a reasonable social distance when interacting with our staff. 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.
