Monday, October 12, 2020

(Kansas City, Mo.) – The Kansas City Public Library is closing its Southeast Branch (6242 Swope Pkwy.) until further notice after learning a staff member has tested positive for COVID-19. That staff member worked the week of October 5 and the Library location closed when we learned of the positive test.

In accordance with Library protocol, all other branch employees have been sent home and a cleaning crew will be in to sanitize the space.

Due to the health and safety protocols the Library instituted, risk of anyone contracting the virus is extremely low, but we will notify anyone who came in direct contact with the employee.
