INDIANAPOLIS — People who visited three Indianapolis Public Library branches in recent days should self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms after a staff member learned they had been exposed to a family member with the coronavirus.

The library's East Washington, Southport and Warren branches closed Tuesday and will undergo deep cleaning, according to a news release. The branches are tentatively scheduled to reopen Wednesday.

The employee and all other staff members who had close contact are under a 10-day quarantine.

Patrons who visited either of the two branches on or around Saturday-Monday should self-monitor for symptoms, according to the library.
