Steps we are asking you to take:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home if you’re sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Wear a facemask if you are sick.
  • If you are NOT sick, you do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
 Steps we are taking as a City and ways to help us:
  • Go online and request an absentee ballot by mail for the May 12 Special Election, here.  
  • Follow us on our social media pages, sign up for our weekly e-newsletter, here or watch our City Channel 991 on Charter Spectrum.  Any critical information on cancellations, building closures, meeting cancellations, etc., will be provided through those channels and posted on the City website. 
  • Please reschedule a building inspection getting a building permit at City Hall if anyone in your household is feeling ill.
  • The Fire and Rescue and Police Departments are working closely together and are ready if this virus moves into our area. The Wood County and Marathon County Health Departments are the best source for local information on COVID-19.
