As confirmed COVID-19 cases increase locally, the Pflugerville Public Library announced July 8 a temporary suspension of curbside services to help mitigate the virus's spread. City officials released an updated reopening plan July 21, in accordance with guidelines provided by Austin Public Health.

Pflugerville is currently listed at a Stage 4 coronavirus risk level, per APH guidelines. This level of risk calls for social distancing and face coverings, avoiding social gatherings, limiting group sizes larger than 10 people, and avoiding nonessential travel or business visits.

Per APH guidelines, the next level, Stage 5, calls for avoiding all social gatherings outside of one's household as well as limiting opened businesses to essential ones only.

Under a Stage 4 denotation, in-person programs and facility uses are discontinued for the foreseeable future. Some services available at Stage 4 levels will discontinue if the city progresses closer to Stage 5 restrictions, per city documents.

Currently, the Pflugerville Public Library offers free Wi-Fi in its parking lot, a virtual library card signup, digital resources, and a range of virtual events and programs for patrons.
