SPRING BREAK REMINDERS - MARCH 29 - APRIL 2

Our district's Spring Break is coming up on March 29 - April 2. In order to keep everyone on Team WB as safe as possible following Spring Break, we are expecting district families planning to travel internationally to the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


CDC recommendations for international travel include:


  • Get tested 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • If you test negative, your self-quarantine may be shortened to seven full days.
  • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
  • If you don’t get tested, it’s safest to stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.


For those planning to travel domestically, please follow the CDC's recommendations for domestic travel. No quarantine is necessary for those traveling within the United States.

In Phase 3, our priorities continue to be the health and safety of staff, users and the community at large and providing convenient access to collections of materials in all formats. An additional goal of Phase 3 is providing access to the Library’s public computers, scanners and printers, equipment that we recognize not everyone in our community may have at home.
