RAILS Ends Delivery Quarantine Requirement

RAILS Ends Delivery Quarantine Requirement
RAILS will end the quarantine requirement for materials moving through our delivery service effective Monday, April 12. Continued research shows that COVID-19 mainly spreads through respiratory droplets in the air, including this very recent research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Latest News/RAILS & RAILS Libraries section of the COVID-19 Pulse Page provides information from additional studies.

RAILS continues to take a number of steps to ensure that our delivery processes remain as safe as possible for both our delivery staff and member library staff. We require all our drivers to wear masks when delivering materials and we clean bins and sorting areas regularly. See the complete list of precautionary measures taken by RAILS delivery staff on the pulse page.

This change only applies to materials transported through RAILS delivery. We continue to advise each RAILS library to make decisions on any additional quarantine periods you feel are necessary based on your own unique situation. If you have any questions, please contact Monica Harris.
