While the immediate risk of COVID-19 is believed to be low at this time, we encourage you to follow the advice and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) websites. They provide information for travelers, businesses, and healthcare providers about how the virus spreads, its symptoms and how to protect yourself.

What can you do?

Practice illness prevention.  This means staying home when you or your child is feeling sick, washing your hands often and effectively, covering a cough or sneeze with your elbow, and seeking healthcare when it is medically necessary

Get immunized against the flu. This will relieve what could be a highly impacted healthcare system

Confirm news you hear about COVID-19 by checking official websites, such as the CDC and Texas DSHS.

The library has been in contact with The City of Wimberley and WISD and will share any information they announce about the virus.
