In response to the ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic, on March 16th the City made the decision to restrict public access to all City Facilities. This step was taken to reduce the chance of transmitting the virus and to protect our staff and the public. The City has established new protocols for the public to access city services during this period. On March 24 the City took a further step, advising our staff not to report to work as they regularly would for the next two weeks. Instead they have been directed to stay home and remain available should they be called upon to respond to an emergency. This step has been taken to reduce the possibility of transmission of the virus and protect our staff so they remain healthy and able to respond should it be necessary. We continue to provide necessary basic services and respond to emergencies as they arise.
The general public are being asked to do their part in protecting themselves and their neighbors. This means they should be vigilant to exercise social distancing. Unless you work in the essential service sector we ask you to please STAY HOME if at all possible. Reducing the rate of transmission of this virus may very well save the life of your family, friends or neighbors.
