SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Shreve Memorial Library has closed two of their branches after employees presented symptoms similar to those of the coronavirus.
The Broadmoor Branch on 1212 Captain Shreve Drive as well as the Gilliam Branch on 12797 Main Street in Gilliam will be closed through July 8, with plans to reopen on July 9.
These branches will be the sixth and seventh locations to close for cleaning since the reopening of branches in early June after being closed for three months.
The branches may open sooner if COVID-19 test results come back negative like the prior employees that were in question of the virus.
During the closure, the two branches will be cleaned and disinfected according to Centers for Disease Control guidelines.
