Coronavirus COVID-19

With the coronavirus impacting daily life in the United States and across the globe, the Murrysville Community Library is dedicated to protecting the safety of our patrons and providing accurate, up-to-date information.

The state of Pennsylvania has set up a toll free number you can call to get help with anxiety and other emotional distress you might be under due to the pandemic. The caseworker who answers your call will also be able to direct you to local help so you can seek continued assistance if needed. The number is: 1-855-284-2494.

What you can do:

The CDC recommends the following practices to protect yourself and others:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. Click here for more information about how to appropriately clean surfaces, and click here for a list of recommended cleaning products.
