The Senior Center announced early Monday they will be
closed until further notice, with only a drive up noon meal delivery for

The library announced later in the day Monday that
they were closing as of 5 pm, with a tentative re-opening date set for April 6th.
A press release says all buildings – including the main library downtown, the
FDLPL Express and Chapter 52 Bookstore – will be closed. No materials will be
available for checkout, with due dates adjusted for all materials for an extra
30 days and fine-free check in provided through May 1st. “We
determined that public and community safety was best served by this temporary
closure.” Director Jon Mark Bolthouse said.
The Fond du Lac Family YMCA has also announced a temporary
closure for their facility. The YMCA will close starting Tuesday and will
remain closed until at least Sunday, March 29th, but a press release
says there is not a re-open date set at this time, due to the nature of the
situation surrounding COVID-19. The release says that the YMCA’s Child Care
Center will remain open, so as to provide a “safe and reliable” place for working
parents to place their children.
