2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

City Manager Trina N. George has required that all City departments, directors and staffers, protect themselves as well as all citizens by conducting an aggressive preventative disinfection of all public facilities immediately and routinely.

All departments have been asked to follow the recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes routinely cleaning all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, countertops, and doorknobs as well as, public computers, pay stations, etc.  

All employees have been asked to stay home when sick, avoid contact with people who may be sick, and wash their hands often. For large gatherings, I’ve asked directors to provide prevention supplies at events, including ensuring soap is available at sinks as well as hand sanitizer.

We encourage all citizens to follow prevention steps from the CDC including:

  • avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • stay home if you are sick
  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
  • wash your hands often

The CDC asks that if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider immediately.
