1 I would like to report a very serious concern about the safety of the library. After managing everything perfectly, putting wipes everywhere, and letting students in only by prior appointment, still, there are some people inside who do not simply take the first step: properly wearing a mask or wearing a mask at all. I understand that librarians cannot really go from one person to another and check people, but this is frustrating. We sit here for hours in an indoor environment with AC on and coughing with a mask that doesn't cover the nose or not wearing a mask at all because there are few people around, is not acceptable and put others in danger or in great distress! I have no idea what I can do as a student except not coming to the library anymore . But I thought I need to share this concern with you.

Thank you for letting us know about the mask violation and public health safety issue you experienced in Richter Library. I have let the current Access Services staff and student workers know to patrol our library spaces better. We normally have public health safety checks and head counts hourly.

If you do find that someone in your vicinity that is not respecting the University's mask policy, please stop by the Access Services desk or email our Access Services Department at : accessteam@miami.edu  and someone should respond quickly. We hope you will consider coming back to visit the Libraries soon.
