3 public libraries in N.O. shutdown, staff member tested positive for COVID-19


Three New Orleans Public Libraries shut down after a library staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

Officials for the New Orleans Public Library made the announcement in a statement released Friday.

Library officials say the staff member recently visited these libraries:

  • Main Library - 219 Loyola Avenue, New Orleans
  • Nix Library - 1401 S. Carrollton Avenue, New Orleans
  • Cita Dennis Hubbell Library - 725 Pelican Avenue, New Orleans

The statement says those library locations closed immediately to be deep cleaned by the New Orleans Mosquito, Termite, and Rodent Control Board.

The libraries will remain closed until a deep cleaning is complete.

The statement also says people who had visited the library before Friday will be contacted.
