City of Freeport Pro-Actively Limiting the Potential Threat from COVID-19
03/13/2020

As news about the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to develop, the City of Freeport is actively monitoring the situation and taking proactive precautions to limit the spread of illness. To maximize public safety and the well-being of staff and residents, the City will be limiting large, City-sponsored gatherings and closing a few City facilities.

As of 6 p.m. Friday, March 13, the City’s Recreation Center will be closed to the public and all Group exercise classes will be suspended through March 30. However, all City public parks including the Golf Course will remain open.


In addition to facility closures, normally called public meetings and events hosted or sponsored by the City will be postponed until further notice. Over the coming days and weeks, the City will continue to assess the situation daily and will update residents regarding future closures and impacts to the community through the City’s website and social media pages.


The City is directing City employees to cancel and/or reschedule all non-essential training/travel for the months of March and April. The City Manager’s Office will continue to evaluate and, if necessary, modify department activity. Staff with the City’s Human Resources Department have been emphasizing good hygiene practices throughout all City facilities and stressing the importance of employees staying home when sick.


The City is evaluating all aspects of City operations to ensure the continuity of City services. This includes identification of critical staff members required to maintain adequate service.
If you do feel sick and believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, call your health care provider or a hospital immediately. Describe your symptoms and travel history, follow their recommendation.
