Update on the Family History Center, Bosworth Place
Doris Ludwick
From the January 2021 HCGS Gazette
This is to let all of you know when we reopen there will be some new protocols in effect. As of now, we're still in a holding pattern: we're waiting for COVID to weaken again. We want you to be safe. When we do reopen, a couple of physical differences will be in place:
 
• MASKS will be mandatory.
• Disposable gloves will be provided if you want them, but those are optional.
• Only three computers will be in operation (to observe the distancing rules).
• We'll have extra places for your PCs in the Center and across the hall in two classrooms.
• Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes will be beside every computer and PC station.
 
There will be some schedule changes, too:
• The Thursday morning shift is canceled, at least for now.
• Bob Rau will be working from home. He will be on call during his German Night shifts.
• Every shift will close 30 minutes early so we can clean and disinfect the Center.
