Scenic Regional Library has closed its Sullivan, Hermann, and New Haven branches, effective immediately, due to two employees being ordered by their physicians to be tested for coronavirus. The employees are both exhibiting coronavirus-like symptoms. The branches will remain closed while the employees' test results are pending.
The county health departments did not mandate that the library close the branches. The library is closing the branches as a precaution due to its employees working in close proximity with each other, as well as directly with the public.
