A MESSAGE FROM THE CITY OF DECATUR
Beginning on Monday, March 16, the remaining Round 3 of scheduled Roundtables has been suspended. Round 2 Roundtables scheduled for Saturday, March 14 have been cancelled.
The City of Decatur is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. As concerns continue to grow, the health, safety, and well-being of our community are our top priorities. The City of Decatur remains open and operational with appropriate measures to protect the health of the community. However, scheduled meetings and events may be postponed or cancelled as additional information and recommendations become available from state and federal public health authorities.
The City’s Emergency Management team is coordinating with and following the guidance of the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), DeKalb Emergency Management Agency (DEMA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are taking a number of actions to ensure the ongoing health and well-being of all our stakeholders including:
Twice daily cleanings of all city facilities and equipment. Soap and sanitizing gel are available for public use at offices and facilities.
Reinforcing CDC disease prevention guidelines and best hygiene practices in all city facilities. Anyone with recent international travel to target areas or with symptoms of illness is encouraged to remain at home.
Closely monitoring guidance from the CDC and state health officials and adjusting our plans as needed.
Updating continuity procedures for all areas of city service and preparing to implement these procedures should regular operations be disrupted.
Canceling or rescheduling a number of community events. For a comprehensive list, visit the City’s calendar of events here.
As additional information and guidance become available, we will keep you informed as to any changes affecting city services. Meanwhile, we are exploring creative ways to engage you in the public plan process within the guidelines or mandates of public health officials. Stay tuned.
Thank you for your continued support and know we are focused on maintaining normal operations with a keen focus on the health and safety of all, while ensuring that we deliver great city services.
