Galloway Library Closes After Coronavirus Exposure

GALLOWAY, NJ — The Galloway Branch of the Atlantic County Library will remain closed until further notice because of coronavirus exposure. Someone who had been in the facility tested positive for COVID-19, according to county officials.

The library closed Friday, when the Atlantic County Division of Public Health began contact tracing. Officials instructed employees to self-quarantine and monitor their health.

Anyone identified as a “close contact” with the individual will be asked to self-quarantine and monitor their symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, nausea, muscle aches and new loss of taste or smell. Unless health officials contact you, you’re not considered a close contact.

Additional deep cleaning and sanitization of the library will occur.

County and health officials remind the public to remain vigilant. The amount of coronavirus cases in the county, state and nation has seen an uptick. New Jersey’s total of 1,994 new cases on Saturday was the highest single-day count reported since May 6.

“We are all concerned about the resilience of this virus and the devastating toll this pandemic has taken,” County Executive Dennis Levinson said in a statement. “Until we have a vaccine and can mitigate the spread of Covid-19, it is vitally important to continue to protect ourselves and others by wearing facemasks, maintaining social distancing, avoiding crowds, and practicing frequent handwashing and other hygiene protocols.”

State officials have reported 5,045 cases, 253 confirmed coronavirus deaths and 11 “probable” deaths in Atlantic County since the pandemic began.
