COVID-19: Get the Information You Need

Halton Region Public Health is the single best source for trusted health information in Burlington about novel coronavirus (COVID-19). For current information about COVID-19 status locally and preventative actions you can take, please visit the links below.

Here at Burlington Public Library, we are monitoring the latest information, convening our Emergency Management team, implementing our pandemic plan, and coordinating with and seeking direction from our City and public health partners. Please read our website notices for important library services updates.

We support the POST (People Outside Safely Together) Promise and encourage you to practice prevention: maintain physical distancing, wear face covering in public, stay home if unwell, practice respiratory etiquette, clean and disinfect regularly, frequently and thoroughly wash and dry your hands, and keep your hands away from your face.
