Region 8 COVID Update.052220.jpg

Like you, we are actively monitoring the latest news about COVID-19 and assessing each day, which, if any, actions need to be taken next to best preserve and support our community.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are temporarily closing City offices at this time until further notice. In the past week, we have taken a series of precautionary steps in response to this developing public health impact, including increased cleaning and sanitizing procedures. We are monitoring this evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation closely and coordinating with public health officials. The best way to prevent infection is to take precautions to avoid exposure to this virus. 

CDC always recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
    • You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
    • Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
      • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
    • The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
    • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
