Covid-19 Rapid Tests and KN95 Masks Available from the Library
The Lenawee County Health Department has given the library a supply of COVID-19 rapid tests and KN95 masks for distribution to the public. Because the supply is limited, the health department limits tests to one box of two tests per person and masks to one package of five masks. In order to pick up the tests or masks, call the library at 517-486-2858, so we can prepare them for pick up. We may not be able to provide tests or masks to those who have not reserved them ahead of time by calling the library. The tests and masks are available for reservation and pick up during the library's regular open hours. We continue to encourage everyone to wear a mask over their nose and mouth while in the library building. Please do not come into the building if you are sick. The library serves a population at high risk for COVID-19, the flu, and other infections. Let’s protect each other.
