Stay Safe Guidelines

The Simcoe-Muskoka Region is currently in the RED - CONTROL zone of the provincial framework. 

All in-library services are available, with some restrictions, including browsing collections, computer access and printing, and bookable spaces for studying and working. We've designed our services and spaces to be low contact so staff and the community remain safe. 

Online programs and coaching sessions will continue, as well as Express Pick-Up appointments. 

Stay-safe guidelines for in-person visits:

  • Contact tracing and screening questionnaire required upon entry
  • Wear a face covering that covers your nose, mouth and chin
  • Use hand sanitizer or wash hands with soap and water
  • Maintain 2m (6ft) physical distance between staff and other patrons
  • Return items 24/7 using the outdoor return slots
  • Maximum 50 patrons in the buildings at a time
  • Visits limited to 60 minutes or less
