[ARCHIVED] City Manager's Update on COVID-19 for September 23

This COVID-19 operational update is for the fourteen days from Thursday September 10 through Wednesday September 23. 

In accordance with the authority granted the City Manager in Section 11 of the West Melbourne Emergency Masking Ordinance No. 2020-05, I have administratively extended the City Council’s Emergency Masking Ordinance to midnight on Monday September 28. Tomorrow, I will evaluate the need to extend the requirement another week to midnight October 5. Each time I have administratively extended the sunset date of the ordinance, the determination has been filed with the City Clerk and posted on the City’s web site. This information is also provided each time directly to the identified ‘essential businesses’ by members of the City’s Police Department.

Over the past two weeks, I have participated in conference calls with the Brevard County Emergency Operations Center. I have scheduled the next County, City and Town Manager COVID-19 conference call for tomorrow afternoon. In these calls, the municipal and county managers share current information and planned actions related to each local government’s evolving responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

After having consulted with Florida Department of Health Brevard Administrator Maria Stahl last week, I have determined to re-open the City’s five public-serving buildings to direct service to the citizens and businesses of our community effective next Wednesday morning September 30.  The City’s requirement for members of the public to mask while inside our facilities remains in place, and the hand sanitizer stations that we have procured will be deployed so as to seek to maximize their use as soon as citizens enter the entry doors of our municipal buildings.
