As a precaution, the Denver Public Library will close certain branches that are close to schools that have closed because a parent has tested positive for COVID-19.

The branches are Montbello, Smiley, Woodbury, Virginia Village and Eugene Field.

CPR is keeping track of all school closures here.

This story is developing and will be updated as more information is made available.
