Under the advice of the Madison Heights fire and police chiefs, and the department heads, the city is immediately implementing the following protective measures for the next 30 days:
- All nonessential public information meetings will be postponed.
- All recreation and senior programs will be canceled or postponed. We will consider refund policies later.
- Our Active Adult center and library will remain open but activities and programs are suspended.
- Meals at the Active Adult center will continue for pick-up and delivery only, no dine-in.
- Busing services will continue but passengers presenting with fever or flu-like symptoms will not be allowed to board.
- The city departments are cleaning counters and work spaces based on information from CDC protocols, and state and county health department recommendations.
If you have a fever or have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 please stay home.
Stopping the spread of COVID-19 requires all of us to protect our most vulnerable residents. We encourage all community stakeholders, families, businesses, and schools to adopt their own mitigation strategies, and recommend the following:
- Learn about the signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, cell phones, and light switches.
- Reinforce best practices for washing hands and covering coughs and sneezes.
- Maintain a supply of medications, foods, and other essentials especially for individuals at risk of severe illness or those already showing symptoms.
- Cancel or postpone large gatherings, conferences, and sporting events.
- Cancel or postpone smaller gatherings that involve individuals at risk of severe illness.
- Consider video or audio meetings instead of face-to-face meetings.
This is a temporary situation and we will get through this but we need a communitywide effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 as effectively as possible.
