Post: D.C. Public Library Workers raising concerns about coronavirus safety

Towards the end of last week, the Washington Post reported that, despite the assurances of the library system head, library workers in the Washington D.C. public library system are raising what they say are serious concerns with safety around the spread of the coronavirus.

Employees in the system, which opened much more aggressively and earlier than many other public libraries across the country, say that the libraries are keeping them in the dark about potential cases and exposures, have failed to implement sufficient cleaning protocols, and are struggling with mask requirements. While many neighboring systems are limited to curbside access only, D.C. has opened up the inside of 14 locations across the city.
