The Sheridan County Fulmer Library opened to the public on May 11, in an initial transition period allowing only 5% of the library’s typical capacity or 30 visitors in at one time for a maximum of 30 minutes. Those precautionary measures were reduced on May 26.
The Fulmer Library has now entered the second transition period and opened to a maximum of 50 visitors at one time and a maximum 60 minute stay in the library per day.
Computer stations will remain operating at reduced numbers to ensure a 6-foot separation between visitors. Library hours are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
The meeting rooms opened to the public on May 26, to a reduced capacity of only 4 people in a room at one time.
While appearing on Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse, Sheridan County Library director Cameron Duff explained the reasoning behind the restrictions for room capacity.
Other restrictions include reducing the number of individuals in a department to ensure the 6-foot social distancing standard.
The Inner Circle meeting room will remain closed until further notice as staff have utilized the room to store any library furniture manufactured with cloth materials to ensure better sanitation.
