THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE REGISTERING
We are delighted to offer once again a week's research at the Family History Library with help from professional genealogists. The Library will initially be opening between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm Mondays through Fridays. It is hoped and expected that there will be longer opening hours in September but we cannot guarantee this.
Whilst the Library considers that the situation with regard to the virus has improved sufficiently to allow the facility to reopen to the public, safety protocols are likely to remain in place.
Those who are particularly anxious about attending our September event may wish to delay attending until a future time. We are hoping to run a number of further trips in the coming twelve months
These notes reflect our understanding of current guidelines and policies but we recognize that they are subject to change.
CURRENT CDC GUIDELINES
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently advise that those who are not fully vaccinated should delay travelling
The CDC also advises that those with symptoms of Covid-19, have recently tested positive for the virus, or have been exposed to a person with Covid-19, pose a very high risk to others and should not travel
Although there is great optimism that the phased reopening of the Library will continue as planned, should the situation worsen again it may be necessary to put certain protocols in place. Guests will be asked to respect any prevailing safety precautions which may exist during the week of our event.
All facilities, workstations, restrooms and common areas are cleaned thoroughly daily
Face masks are recommended but not required
Social distancing is encouraged but not required. Many of the new workstations accommodate social distancing and, as Ancestor Seekers consultants will be sitting periodically with guests at their computers, we would encourage guests to use these new workstations where possible
Those who are not feeling well are strongly encouraged not to come into the Library
SALT LAKE PLAZA HOTEL
Face masks are not required
Social distancing is not required
There is currently no restaurant at the hotel.
The hotel currently does not operate a shuttle service. They are working on this and we hope that that this will be reinstated by September, but cannot guarantee it
Currently due to a shortage of housekeeping staff, rooms are cleaned prior to arrival but are only cleaned further on request, although room supplies are kept up to date. The situation is improving and will hopefully be resolved come September but, again, we cannot guarantee it.
We will meet for a few minutes each morning at the hotel, at which social distancing may not be in place. Although we recommend attendance, it is not required.
