Coronavirus Resources

Last Updated: March 30, 2020

The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak continues to accelerate globally, representing a serious public health threat for communities of all sizes. As central public spaces and trusted resources for health and wellness information, libraries must be proactive in developing and implementing comprehensive response plans and activities.

ULC has launched this page to help equip libraries with information and tools to prepare for the potential impact of this virus. The resources included on this page are not comprehensive, and we will be making updates on an ongoing basis. Please email crogers@urbanlibraries.org with feedback or suggested content.
