What to expect at City Hall

Risk of COVID is receding

There's no doubt COVID is still making people ill. Each week across the nation, thousands are still catching the viral disease and sadly too many are dying from it. And, there's also the complications that stem from long COVID. However, the overall risk of catching COVID is receding. On May 11, 2023, the federal Public Health Emergency (PHE) ended.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) provides updates about changes to data reporting, epidemic orders and the availability of COVID testing and vaccines. View their website for the latest information. 

You may want to continue practicing good health safety measures: wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching door handles, stair rails and fixtures that are commonly touched by others. Cover sneezes by using the crock of your arm or a kleenex. A mask is recommended for people with a cold or any symptoms since some COVID infections can be mild or similar to other illnesses.  

In-person meetings have resumed at City Hall since January 2022 with an online option (Zoom) for attendees of meetings of City Council.  All board members, the mayor and council members are required to be present at the meeting location. Agendas are available on the website (see calendar or Agendas/Minutes page).

Please do not enter City Hall if you are sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID, which may include a fever, cough, shortness of breath, severe headache, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell.  The city follows CDC recommendations for isolation and quarantine guidelines.
