We are monitoring the situation carefully with our municipality and local health authorities, and have implemented the following practices:
- Installation of plexiglass shields at the various service desks
- Encouraging standard prevention measures for staff and patrons, such as washing your hands often with soap and water, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer, sneezing and/or coughing into your sleeve, avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth, and staying home if you’re sick
- Increased cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces and equipment
- Expanded signage promoting recommended public hygiene practices
Should the situation change in Midland, further updates and responses will be made available here on the website to ensure we are keeping you informed.
