Library closed due to COVID-19 exposure
The Elizabethton/Carter County Public Library has closed until at least Tuesday, Aug. 4, after learning that employees were in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus. The library has been working with state public health officials to ensure all proper health measures are taken.
While the library is closed, due dates will be extended and fines will not be charged. Any scheduled events that were scheduled will be rescheduled to a date in the future.
“Our concern is for the safety of our employees as well as our patrons and surrounding community. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we believe it is important to shut down at this time,” said a spokesman for the city and the library.
