FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE CITY OF LINCOLN PARK TAKES PROACTIVE STEPS TO STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19
Following the announcement of the state’s first presumptive positive cases of COVID-19, Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) provided recommendations designed to help prevent the spread of the virus. The City is following these guidelines as well as implementing measures to limit non-essential city business and has cancelled all City-sponsored programming and activities at the City of Lincoln Park Public Library, the Kennedy Memorial Building/Senior Center and the Community Center effective immediately until April 6, 2020.
We encourage our residents to utilize our online services available at www.citylp.com and the drop box located next to the side entrance at City Hall as much as possible while the situation unfolds. Our priority in this strategy is to protect our residents. In accordance with the current State of Emergency, the City of Lincoln Park is abbreviating our Council meetings. Department Head and Councilmember reports as well as Citizen Communications have been suspended until further notice. Citizens are encouraged to stay informed by watching the Council meetings on-line via Lincoln Park TV (accessible through our website under the “Government” tab) or on their cable television channel during this time, as opposed to in person attendance. This action is intended to facilitate necessary City business while keeping our citizens as safe as possible from the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Information about COVID-19 is rapidly changing. The Emergency Management Team will continue to monitor the situation closely. Residents can also stay informed by regularly visiting Michigan.gov/Coronavirus, CDC.gov/Coronavirus andwww.waynecounty.com.
