Keeping everyone safe

Safety videos are available on the Inverclyde Libraries social media channels to demonstrate the changes and new safety measures before people visit.


Test and Protect

For the health and safety of our visitors and staff in Inverclyde libraries and Watt institution, we are recording the name and contact details of everyone who enters.

This information will be used to enable NHS Scotland and statutory partners to contact you should you have been in the premises around the same time as someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.

Contacting people who might have been exposed to the virus is an important step in stopping the spread.

An example information poster and our relevant privacy notice regarding Test and Protect can be found in related documents linked on this page.
