Evangelical Library, Colombo, Sri Lanka Moving forward as lockdown eases

Our news updates from SWT recipients around the world continued this week with an email from Mrs Ling from the Malaysia Baptist Theological Seminary Library in Penang. Mrs Ling explains how life is returning to some semblance of normality. 

“We have been busy since the March lockdown in Malaysia,” explains Mrs Ling. "We have been working from home and busy looking for online resources for our students since on-site teaching and the library were closed during the Covid-19 pandemic hit. 

We returned to on-site work on May 11 and our library was partially opened on May 14 following all the standard operating systems set by our government and the guidelines for the library. Returned books are being quarantined for two days before shelving and shelf browsing is not available. Loans are available by appointment only. 

 Now Malaysia is in stage three of our government’s Covid-19 strategy, called RMCO (Recovery Movement Control Order); this until August 31. Most people have returned to on-site work but some big group gatherings are not allowed. 

Churches are allowed to have on-site services but allowing only one-third attendance of the maximum space capacity. They also have to ensure social distancing, sanitation and temperature measurement, and keep records of all attendees. 

God Bless You. 神祝福您 !"
