At Friday's PLD Director's Meeting in Newport, a few people requested that I
send out the Coronavirus Policy I mentioned I've been working on. 


A few caveats-this is a draft that no one else has laid eyes on, including
my board. I'm not even sure my board will want me to be this specific, but I
thought I'd work on it just in case. I may decide to generalize it and
remove references to this specific virus. I may also completely change the
level definitions, our responses to each level, or how we pay days off. this
is really just my early working draft. I do like the "levels" approach,
though. I know it will make sense to my staff who like having as much
clarity and structure as possible. If you notice problems, feel free to
point them out to me; I'm still working on it so it's likely to change


I am curious about your plans to pay staff if they are quarantined or if
your library closes. Regular pay? That seems the most logical to me, but
then it seems a bit odd to cover the time for someone quarantined but then
use sick leave for someone who actually gets sick.  Care to share your
