In order to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and residents, the City will be joining county and school district initiatives by limiting large, City-sponsored gatherings and closing a few City facilities. 

The City will continue to assess the situation daily, and follow guidance provided by the CDC. We will update residents regularly about future closures and impacts to the community through the City’s website and social media pages.

COVID Phone Bank

Residents can help prevent the spread of illness by:

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is 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. The CDC recommends keeping a distance of at least six feet.
  • Stay home when you are sick. Keeping a sick child at home prevents the spread of illness in the school and community and allows your child an opportunity to rest and recover.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
