The City will continue to clean all facilities and wipe down all “high-touch” surfaces during the day to keep residents and staff healthy and safe.
• The City has issued a ban on all non-essential training travel for personnel, however personnel are encouraged to participate in online training when available.
• All City meeting facilities and conference rooms will be closed for external bookings and meetings at this time until further notice.
• City staff is directed to attend meetings via conference call when able and reduce contact with colleagues and professional service vendors.

For residents and customers of the City, we encourage you to continue to use common sense and when possible conduct your business via phone and email especially if you have flu like symptoms.
