Roseburg, OR – The City of Roseburg is continuing to monitor information provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Oregon Health Authority (OHA), Douglas County Public Health, and the Governor’s office about COVID-19. Currently, the City of Roseburg is operating with normal business hours and full operations. However, the City is taking interim steps to ensure the safety of our staff and the public. Staff will continue to evaluate additional safety measures as necessary, and changes may be implemented. City staff is participating in leadership calls and meetings with local health officials, Mercy Hospital, Bay Cities Ambulance, and Douglas Fire District 2 to evaluate how to best serve the public while keeping first responders and medical professionals safe. Per CDC and OHA recommendations, the City is encouraging the use of social distancing. Public meetings currently scheduled are proceeding, but will be set up to maintain the recommended separation between attendees. Staff will continue to evaluate available technology that may better facilitate virtual meetings. The Roseburg Public Library is maintaining its regular operating hours, but will see some changes.  Fewer computers will be available for use in order to encourage recommended social spacing.  Scheduled programs are continuing, with changes made to provide additional spacing between participants.  Any library patron showing signs of illness may be asked to leave.  The library depends heavily on volunteers and has contingency plans in place to reduce operations if needed.  As always, there is a vast amount of material available to library cardholders on the electronic platforms – CloudLibrary and Overdrive.
