Member Services COVID-19 Statement
Dear Christian Record Member,
Christian Record Services, Inc. implements Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health department safety measures to help ensure the safety of staff and the safety of members who receive library services. As of May 11, 2020, Christian Record has resumed all library services. If you prefer not to receive library mail at this time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 402-488-0981, option 3.
Lending library procedures:
All Christian Record employees who process library materials wear a mask and gloves. Returned member mail is quarantined for at least seven days, before restocking, to allow time for the virus that causes COVID-19 to die off. In addition, Christian Record and postal employees are advised to follow CDC recommended prevention methods that include avoiding close contact with people who are sick, avoiding touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, staying home if they are sick, covering coughs and sneezes with tissue, then throwing the tissue in the trash, cleaning and disinfecting frequently-touched objects and surfaces, washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and using a 60-percent alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
The CDC and World Health Organization’s (WHO) guidance continues to indicate there is no evidence the coronavirus is spreading through the mail. According to the WHO, the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low, and the risk of catching the virus from a package that has been moved, traveled, and exposed to different conditions and temperatures is also low. Nonetheless, out of an abundance of caution, the USPS recommends that when receiving mail customers follow the same CDC daily life guidelines that include washing hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol after accepting deliveries or collecting mail from a post office or home mailbox.
We also encourage members to continue to access the magazines you enjoy in audio, Braille, and large print via your online Christian Record library account at Lib.Guide. If you need help setting up an account, please email Services@ChristianRecord.org.
We pray that the Lord will bless and keep each of you.
Christian Record staff
