We all working with all our other city partners and the community to help slow COVID-19’s spread. And, we are taking care of our employees.
Our community’s safety is our main focus and as a City Department we will maintain essential services, support our partners, and continue to reinforce the importance of following Lane County Public Health’s advisories.
We are making sure our workforce stays healthy so we can continue serving the community. By keeping ourselves healthy, we help reduce the spread of disease and ensure we are adequately staffed for public safety response.
What We Are Doing
All of these efforts help slow the spread of COVID-19. By slowing the spread, we can preserve our health care capacity which will be critical in the coming weeks. These actions also help protect people who may be at higher risk - people over 60 and those with pre-existing respiratory, cardiac conditions, or who are immunocompromised. Most of us – 80% – will have mild, cold-like symptoms if we contract the disease – but higher risk groups face more serious illness. We can all help reduce the impact of COVID-19 in our community.
