WHAT WE'RE DOING AT CITY HALL

 
  • (Updated 03/24/2020) Edgewood City Hall is closed to the public until further notice. The building department will be conducting inspections on a case by case basis. 
  • (Updated 03/16/2020) Here at City Hall we are currently closed. City Hall and all non-emergency services are suspended until further notice, we are sanitizing hard surfaces such as doorknobs, handrails and counters during this time. 
  • (Updated 03/13/2020) With the City Hall closure, our Council meetings are still open to the public to meet the Open Public Meetings Act regulations - however, to minimize exposure and impact to the community during this time, study sessions and council meetings of the Edgewood City Council will be held in a virtual format through ‘Zoom’ for the foreseeable future.
  • We have hand sanitizer available through out our offices. Please use them liberally when visiting; we are as well.
  • We are determining which non-essential services can be suspended if it becomes necessary to reassign staff to maintain primary services.
WHAT WE ALL CAN DO

  • Wash our hands, using hot water and soap for 20 seconds
  • Cover coughs and sneezes (using your inner elbow)
  • If you are sick, stay home. 
Public Health is recommending the following steps:
People at higher risk of severe illness should stay home and away from large groups of people as much as possible, including public places with lots of people and large gatherings where there will be close contact with others. People at higher risk include:
    • People 60 and older
    • People with underlying health conditions including heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes
    • People who have weakened immune systems
    • People who are pregnant

    Workplaces should enact measures that allow people who can work from home to do so. Taking these measures can help reduce the number of workers who come into contact with COVID-19 and help minimize absenteeism due to illness.

    If you can feasibly avoid bringing large groups of people together, consider postponing events and gatherings.

    All people should not go out when they are sick.

    Avoid visiting hospitals, long term care facilities, or nursing homes to the extent possible. If you need to go, limit your time there and keep six feet away from patients.
